Vanessa – The Automotive TVET

Vanessa Stout is a 16 year old TVET student studying Automotive Mechanics. She wasn't sure where she wanted to go with her career and thought she would learn some skills through this course because 'everyone has a car'. She is thoroughly enjoying the course and is into her second year.

Vanessa tells us that more and more girls are taking up Automotive courses, which is great to see. Her family and school are very supportive of what she's doing and the boys in her class have helped her through the challenges she's faced. The teachers are also incredibly helpful and friendly.

'The best thing about going to TAFE is having fun and learning.'
