The Gordon TAFE will take you there

Do you recognise Gordon TAFE graduates Francoise Zaninka and Jennifer Peart? They’ve recently become the public faces of a new campaign showing how ‘TAFE will take you there’, that’s gracing our screens and media.
Francoise’s path to a career in early childhood education started at The Gordon. Arriving in Australia as a refugee from Africa in 2010, Francoise now works as a qualified early childhood educator and hopes to study a Bachelor of Education in future.
“The Gordon offers quality teaching and support. It helped me to career opportunities I never thought were possible.”
– Francoise Zaninka

Jennifer turned her love of animals into a career after studying a veterinary nursing course at The Gordon. Jennifer is now a qualified veterinary nurse, and is studying a Bachelor of Zoology and Animal Science at Deakin University.

"TAFE gave me the stepping stone I needed to take my passion for working with animals to the next level. The Gordon catered to my needs, helped me with my studies, and helped me with a job placement close to my home. My course gave me the theoretical knowledge to get out and perform the practical work.’’ 

– Jennifer Peart

Why the new brand?

The ‘TAFE will take you there’ campaign brings together Victoria's 12 TAFEs and four dual-sector universities under a new united TAFE Victoria brand, providing a strong collective voice as the centre of the government-funded training system.
It also promotes the hundreds of high-quality, industry linked TAFE courses on offer and shows students and industry that TAFEs are government-backed providers, each with their own unique expertise and specialisation.
As part of the campaign, Francoise and Jennifer’s stories, along with other TAFE graduates, show how quality training at a trusted TAFE can be the key to a great career.

“The Victorian Government is investing hundreds of millions of dollars into TAFE. That’s why we’re endorsing a collective brand of providers – showing the community TAFE can take you anywhere.
TAFE isn’t just changing the lives of everyday Victorians – it’s also making sure industry has the skills it needs for the jobs of today and tomorrow.” – Gayle Tierney, Minister for Training and Skills
