My management have really noticed a difference

"I really enjoy the practical side of TAFE and feel like I will be able to go into the real world now and use all of the skills that I have learnt over the year. I am far more confident. I am leading my team so much better than previously and my management have really noticed a difference in my confidence and skills and abilities."
