STUDENT SUCCESS STORIES

 

HeidiMeet Prue,
Hospitality Student

"In 2019 I was making my way back into “regular” work after staying home raising children, and my husband, Daniel, was between jobs.

I’d been considering purchasing a local cafe and when Daniel’s job provider suggested he do some study at Tamworth Community College; we both thought a few extra qualifications wouldn’t go astray. We signed up to do the Espresso Coffee course and also Food Handling.

We found both courses interesting and informative and decided to purchase Teamo Teahouse.

I also enrolled in the Food Safety Supervisor and Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) courses to add to my knowledge, certification, and competency. All of these courses have set me up very well to walk into my new role and I use my learned skills every minute of my workdays. Daniel has since gained his RSA as have several of my staff.

I absolutely recommend doing any or all of these courses at the Tamworth Community College. It’s so easy to just spend a day at the College and learn with those around you also interested in the same subject and walk out with your qualifications on the way."

 

Meet Meg,
Trainee

"After graduating high school, I commenced full-time employment with Oxley Community Transport as a trainee. Undertaking the Certificate III in Business Administration at Tamworth Community College provided me with the support to study, work, and gain industry experience all at once.

Tamworth Community College has helped to shape my career path, providing me with specific knowledge and workplace skills that aren’t covered in a school setting. The support and encouragement I received from my trainer throughout my studies was incredible. The administration staff ensured that I was comfortable and enjoying my studies. TCC was extremely flexible in their training approach, allowing me to alter my training times to better suit my schedule.

I would highly recommend Tamworth Community College to anyone considering a career change or wanting to further their knowledge or skills."

 

Heidi Meet Helen,
Customised Computer Training

After becoming physically unable to continue her job as a Haemodialysis Nurse, Helen realised she needed new skills to make the transition into administration duties.

“I had some basic computer skills from using various programs during my career, but I realised that was not enough. I was embarrassed and extremely nervous. I attended two, 2-hour one-on-one lessons with Max Collins.

The experience was life-changing! It gave me the confidence to try new things. Now, I am in a new town in a new job and will be eternally grateful for the gentle approach and the many new skills I learned.

I recommend this avenue of support to anyone seeking to learn or improve their computer skills.”

 

Meet Carmen,
Customised Student Support

“I was looking to further my qualifications to gain Certificate IV in Assessment and Training in Coffs Harbour but unfortunately at the time, there were no available courses. I enrolled online to complete my studies and found this extremely difficult not having a trainer present to help me. I phoned around for support locally but nothing was offered my way until I made contact with Tamworth Community College who came to the rescue!

I was overwhelmed by the support and interest from the college to assist me in the completion of my studies. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience; I felt a huge weight being lifted off my shoulders at the end of the day knowing my studies were completed with the guidance, help, and support from a very knowledgeable and experienced trainer.

I highly recommend the Tamworth Community College to anyone interested in pursuing future studies. My trainer was exceptionally professional, providing the utmost support, advice, and encouragement.

From the bottom of my heart thank you so very much to all involved in giving me the opportunity to complete my studies with full confidence and understanding.”
