Humans of GOTAFE - Haley Currie
Wangaratta Magpies trainer and GOTAFE Nursing student shares what studying at TAFE is really like.
For GOTAFE student Haley Currie, nursing was always something she was interested in but “the main factor with actually doing something about it was that free TAFE was offered” she said.
GOTAFE students benefit from hands-on training with experienced trainers. “It’s the sort of stuff you can’t learn from a book” Haley said. “They just help you understand it from a compassionate view, hearing it from another person and how it affected them”.
Students learn job-ready skills to set them up for success in the workplace. “I feel like the TAFE course prepares you very well” she said, “when you go on placement it sort of gives you confidence to do things because you’ve already practiced it at TAFE”.
Haley is one of the trainers at the Wangaratta Magpies. Her role involves delivering first aid, injury management, rehabilitation, massage and using strapping and taping to help players recover.
“I think doing that job gave me the confidence to give the course a go because I knew I could handle a crisis, handle when people are injured.”
