Student stories

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.   

Student Pedro is on the right of the photo. He's positioned on an angle and he smiles to the distance. The lighting is dim and moody. A soft yellow light comes from the right of the image, lighting up the side of Pedro. He wears a brown shirt, he has black hair hair, brown eyes and a black beard.

There’s a wide variety of equipment so that students can learn and explore different skills. It’s very helpful to prepare us for our future career. Read my story

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.

Nachi is situated to the right of the image, she's laughing and looking towards the camera. In her right hand is a latte coffee. She's sitting on a brown leather seat with another brown leather seat on her right that's empty. There's a bench in the background with a record player sitting on top. There's a vase with flowers. She wears a black leather jacket and t-shirt. Nachi's hair is down and pulled to the front.

I was drawn to Australia because of the country’s beautiful weather, stunning natural environment, and friendly and welcoming people. Read my story
