In the nutshell, APSI provide a good environment for students. You will have more opportunities for your career path (under the circumstance of learning/studying hard).
I started studying at APSI when I finished Year 12. I was introduced to APSI by my teacher in high school. When I first started, the work was difficult for me to understand, but I felt more confident because the teacher guided me. APSI really helps people to grow and it is really amazing.
I started with the Certificate III in Hospitality and since that moment I’ve learnt that I can do much better and develop more skills, also, I have built up my confidence. Then I went to my workplace training which was a challenge for me. I studied at the institute and I took the knowledge to the practical training.
When I started I didn’t trust myself. I was really surprised at being here. I find that APSI helps you achieve your goals and helps you to find a job which you are happy with. The opportunity is always there and you need to go and get it. So when I finish this course I want a open a small business – a cafe.
