You can't stop progress
"I've always been confident in maths and problem solving but no practical accounting experience, so I’m enjoying the deep dive into a range of valuable foundation units. This course is an eye-opener to understand the core of accounting and the perfect stepping stone into the industry."
Driven to amplify her passion for maths, former retail assistant, Erin Shin Li has packed up the tills and relaunched her career as a junior accountant.
With an appetite for facts and figures, Erin dreamed of bigger things. But with little experience under her belt, she knew she needed to gain some skills and enrolled in a Diploma of Accounting at TAFE NSW Hornsby.
"There's a lot of ongoing support provided to students to really understand the accounting concepts. A lot of the components can be challenging at times, so the teachers delivering the courses and supporting our class are second to none - their guidance really pushed me to achieve my best,” said Ms Shin Li.
