Jodie, a mother of seven children who recently graduated from The Gordon with a Certificate III in Individual Support said, “I chose The Gordon to study Individual Support because I knew they had a wonderful reputation. With 120 work-placement hours I was confident that I would have the skills and knowledge to be a very good Personal Care Attendant. Free TAFE also made returning to study more appealing, especially in our current situation.”
