Coleen Emata

Coleen from the Phillipines is studying a Diploma of Hospitality at QTHC

“Growing up in a Filipino home, it has always been a tradition in our family to gather together to celebrate special occasions and momentous achievements. My love affair with cooking started during these simple get-togethers. I have vivid memories as a young fourteen-year-old helping my dad out in the kitchen with the mise en place. I found joy in assisting him with his specialty dishes and serving my family, even pretending that the beautifully garnished dishes were my own recipes.

Jenny Briton

Jenny studied the Advanced Diploma of Hospitality at QTHC

“I was very impressed with Quality Training. They have always been very helpful and flexible, particularly in terms of meeting visa needs. The staff are very accommodating, they were always good to me, and I did make a couple of good friends. Overall, it was a very positive experience I and would recommend QTHC”

Heather turned her love of horses into a career through Melbourne Polytechnic’s Bachelor of Equine Studies. A Melbourne Polytechnic study grant of A$12,000 led her to the United States to complete a short course in Advanced Equine Reproduction.

Daniel Kolosi

Studied locksmithing at Melbourne Polytechnic

After a career in a different industry for ten years, Daniel decided it was time to try a different path – locksmithing.

“I’d already had a few different careers and I was a mature-age student, so I wanted to try something different. Locksmithing appealed to me.” Daniel found the course to be an extremely positive experience. “My teachers were really good, really interested in us.They pushed us hard and it’s a really good syllabus. Locksmiths trained by NMIT are highly regarded around the world.” Daniel has subsequently gone on to win a Master Locksmithers Award.
