TAFE helped me be the best I can be

TAFE Queensland Brisbane is a relaxed and multicultural place to study. This course prepares you as a teacher and you get a lot of practical experience. I have been at uni and didn't get as much practical experience as at TAFE. The teachers give you great feedback and stretch you to be the best you can be.
