“To be honest, TAFE wasn’t my plan. I had applied for nursing at uni after Year 12, and after not getting in, I was quite deflated. Turning to The Gordon was possibly the best thing that happened. It was a lot more hands-on. As a visual learner, this was perfect for me and meant I could really focus in a small classroom environment.” Lili Gard, Diploma of Nursing
