2012 National Skills Week Ambassador Susan Jarrett

After a few career changes Susan Jarrett feels she is finally on the right path.  Susan won the Student Award in the Building Designers NSW 2011 Design Awards and was subsequently featured in Winning Design magazines. While studying she developed her own building design business and to further her skills and experience, she is currently completing an Advanced Diploma of Sustainable Building Design at St George College of TAFE, Sydney.

"A career counsellor made me realise that I had to make a change and although going back to studying was a big financial commitment, changing my career to one more aligned with my interests has been incredibly rewarding.

I chose TAFE over university because I wanted to gain the practical skills to start my own business and even before I finished the course I had the confidence and knowledge to do exactly that.

And I'm getting work through the contacts I made while studying at Ultimo college."
