Job loss opens new doors for student – TAFE Queensland
The 29-year-old from Ashmore on the Gold Coast was working in the hospitality industry while undertaking a Diploma of Nursing when the pandemic restrictions left her out of a job. Thankfully, using the transferrable skills she has already gained during her studies, TAFE Queensland was able to support Ellie by connecting her with an employer in the aged care industry.
Ellie, who studies at TAFE Queensland’s Southport campus said she is extremely grateful to have a job in the current climate and is thrilled to be working in the health industry alongside nursing professionals.
“I can’t thank TAFE Queensland enough – they not only gave me the confidence, skills and capability to chase my dreams, but also connected me with my new employer,” she said.
