“After many years working in hospitality and retail banking, I decided to re-evaluate my career options. I decided a six-month taster would be a good way to expand my experience and chose the Certificate III in Laboratory Skills at The Gordon. This decision changed my life.
I found the subjects and new skills fascinating. I found the staff to be knowledgeable and helpful. I loved the engagement of mind and hand and the thought of really contributing to society. My six-month taster became a committed study toward diploma qualifications and a new career.
After graduation I worked in a medical microbiology laboratory, and have now returned to The Gordon as a laboratory technician. I work behind-the-scenes to ensure the practical experiments I conducted as a student, are now teaching the next round of aspiring scientific personnel.”
