Course studied: Bachelor of Early Childhood (Birth-5)
Ashleigh Harvey enrolled in the Bachelor of Early Childhood Education (Birth – 5), having already completed the Diploma of Early Childhood at TAFE Western Sydney's Nirimba College. Ashleigh works in a long day care centre in a room for two and three year old children.
"I found the Diploma course exceptional in the way the teachers taught, the support they gave and the hands on experience I received. Because of this I chose to complete my Bachelor Degree with TAFE as I was certain I would receive the same support throughout. What I love about this course is the flexibility. I am enrolled in the evening course which allows me to work full time as I am studying. TAFE Western Sydney gave me hands-on experience and great teacher support."
