No matter your question,
we are here to help!
Since I was a kid I always liked cars. My favourite thing I’ve learnt is engines. Engines are like the hearts of cars; they are very complicated and precise. TAFE Queensland gives us the opportunity to do practical placement in a real workshop. As a student here, you get to do lots of really great things rather than just sitting inside reading books.
