    I had to look at which place I wanted to go to and I did this based off the learning style I liked, I needed to be able to do 1 on 1 work and I am able to do that at TAFE .

    Course Curriculum :

    It is really good however it should be changed a little bit, it needs to be tailored to everyone's learning style and doesn't cater to some of them. The subject self if really good and challenging all the teachers are good
