I chose TAFE because it is known for the quality of its courses. I wanted to develop skills that would be valuable for me here and also back in my home country.  I graduated from university back in my country, and I plan to study an international master degree. But in the meantime, I was looking for a more practical and shorter course that would help me with the confidence to go on with my studies.

Lecturer Ben Tan stands towards the camera with a big smile. He's wearing a light brown business shirt with his name badge on his right chest above branding that says "Saltbush Restaurant." On the left side of his shirt, it reads "South Metropolitan" with the "TAFE WA" logo. Sitting on a bench behind him are two plunger coffee pots in stainless steel. There's a brown panelled wall that fills the backdrop.

I completed my studies in July 2010 and almost instantly found employment within the industry. In 2020 I started working at SM TAFE as an events management lecturer at the Bentley, Fremantle and Mandurah campuses, teaching a variety of units across events, hospitality management, food and beverage and first aid.
