I've done it!

"I love every bit of it! I've always had a passion for cooking and always loved baking but once I learnt more about cooking and found out how much knowledge and how many things there are to know I just wanted to know more and more and more. Since I've started working and going to TAFE I've started to come out of my shell more and started talking to people and have improved my communication skills. TAFE Queensland Gold Coast has helped me improve my standards and my skills so I can take them back to my workplace and demonstrate the standards that they expect. I hope my qualifications take me to other countries around the world. To anybody who was even considering going to TAFE to study my course I would tell them to jump at that opportunity as fast as they could."
