How to enrol

Jeremy Cheetham

Let's celebrate the number crunchers

"The reason why I decided to go to TAFE was because I had been working in customer service retail for a fairly long time and really needed a career change. My course is really flexible, I only study two nights a week so I have been able to work pretty much full-time while I'm studying. The people I have been studying with are all in the industry right now and they've all been able to bring their experiences to class every week which has been really good."
