BE in civil construction

BE in fashion

Ann went to university to study economics, but what she really wanted was to be a fashion designer. So she spent her evenings learning to sew and compiling a design portfolio. Then she made the Switch to TAFE NSW Fashion Design School. Explore her story.

BE in fitness

Art school to automotive

“I loved my artistic talents but couldn’t see how that was going to give me a future career. If you do an apprenticeship and study at TAFE NSW, you get to earn, learn and have a job at the end of your studies. You’re not dropped in the deep end like university students.”

— Megan Riley, award-winning automotive refinishing technician

Arts to early childhood

“When I found the first five years of a child’s life are the most crucial time for learning and development, I realised that I had a passion for this! Every lecturer I had at TAFE NSW showed interest in my academic career and my life that went over and above the classroom. They don’t see you as a number; they see you as an individual.”

— Blake Stewart, TAFE NSW Bachelor of Early Childhood Education
