I've done it!

"The teachers are fantastic, they are really helpful and genuinely care. The staff have been really helpful especially in the student support services. They've helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and my learning style which I think is very important. People need to know their learning styles so that they're comfortable knowing that everybody does learn in different ways. TAFE accommodates all of those different learning styles. The people at TAFE Queensland Gold Coast are great, very diverse, a lot of young people but there's also a lot of older people like myself and it really has given me a well-rounded view of people in the workplace. This course has given me so much knowledge about the business environment and statistics and research, and money and all aspects of business. I've really, really enjoyed it, and I've made a lot of networks and I can read a lot of business terminology now which I couldn't do before. I would definitely recommend TAFE. Don't be afraid to try because you really will learn new things."
