I started studying a Certificate II in Tourism through OTEN during early 2013 alongside studying for my NSW Higher School Certificate. I took on the course as a way to develop a greater understanding for the tourism industry while participating in a school based traineeship at the local Tourist Information Centre. This course has helped change my life for the better because it provided me with an extensive list of issues to discuss within one of my HSC courses, Business Services. As a result I achieved a HSC mark of 91 and was ranked 5 th in the state for the course. This mark has now allowed me to attend University and study a Bachelor of Laws in 2014. My OTEN course also allowed me to interact better with customers and provide a high level of service which helped me to successfully obtain work after completing school. Completing my Tourism Course also contributed to my recent award of Ashford Junior Citizen of the year, which I was extremely proud of. I have attached a photo of myself with Australia day Ambassador Joseph Tawadros at the presentation. I would never hesitate to complete further studies through OTEN, everyone was very helpful.
