TAFE's flexibility was critical to my success
"I wanted to pursue a career as a speech pathologist, but with a 16-year gap in my education and a busy lifestyle, I couldn't see any way to achieve it. I needed a study option that could work around my role as a mum of four and carer to my husband. Adult tertiary preparation (ATP) was that option. The part-time mode gave me flexibility without sacrificing learning momentum or connection with fellow students, which were both critical to my success. ATP propelled my career dream into reality."
