Student stories

Student Ivan in garden at TAFE campus

I study horticulture at TAFE and there is good infrastructure here. We have a nice greenhouse and retail section. You see a lot of plants and that obviously helps because seeing a plant in real life is not the same as studying about it in a book. There's a lot of practical activities and the lecturers are very passionate as they've been in the industry for many years. This is different from the professors I had at university.

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.

Zaki is the centre of the image. She wears shorts and a t-shirt. She smiles towards the camera. In the background is a few electric scooters, lots of big green trees and North Metropolitan campus. The pavement is colourful with red, blue and yellow squares.

I love Perth so much! I think after graduation, I will be freelance in this industry in Australia and probably Japan, too. I can choose my work style.

Before coming to Australia, I completed an advanced diploma in digital animation, and wanted to further my studies to get into the digital market workforce with ease. I didn’t want to go to university, but rather study in a more practical environment, being assessed on real workplace skills needed in the industry. Imagine my luck when I found TAFE. The staff and students are friendly, and willing to assist me when I ask them.
