and VCE VET Furnishing
Why I chose VET
I chose VET because it gave me a chance to undertake a traineeship in a field that I loved. I also chose VET because it gave me the opportunity to do further study in a shorter time which has opened many doors for me.
What I got out of VET
Firstly, VET improved my communication skills, allowing me to share stories and communicate better with different people in the industry. Secondly, VET developed my practical skills. I even started a shearing business when I was 18 because I learned the skill through my traineeship on the farm. Lastly, I gained qualifications that opened up future study and career options.
My VET success story
Everything from my VET is linked together. Without doing my VET traineeship I would not have started my small shearing business because I would never have learned to shear sheep. Without my VET traineeship I would not have continued with further study to undertake an Advance Diploma in Agribusiness Management. Without my diploma I would not have had to opportunity work on a dairy farm in the United States of America and gain international experience.
Life is too short to be stuck in a job you don't enjoy. There are so many VET courses in so many different areas that may be perfect for you and open the doors to new opportunities.
