How to enrol

Anthony Slavic

Learning practical skills through hands-on teaching

As a self proclaimed 'hands on' learner, my teachers at TAFE Queensland Gold Coast recognised the importance of providing me with avenues that showcase my desire to be creative with my hands. The practical knowledge and skills I have learnt throughout the course as well as having the qualification from completing a nationally accredited course, will allow me to fulfil my desire to travel the country....making and fixings things!
