Profiles and Testimonials

“I really wanted to do something with computers and didn’t know what I liked or what I was good at. I did quite a bit of research and The Gordon seemed to be more hands-on, and specifically talked about job outcomes.
TAFE definitely isn’t daunting and you can form great relationships with your instructors. We also get opportunities to network with people in the industry and make our own connections.
The Gordon don’t just teach IT subjects. We learn about business, client relationships, client rapport and more. We even cover WHS and entrepreneurship – these things are important and add value and experience to our learning. The course has solidified my career pathway. I know I’ll be able to walk into a business and have the day-to-day skills I need.”
