Carpentry teacher Jamie Seeto chose to not only train at TAFE Queensland but also returned to teach, and is now doing his part to benefit apprentices and their trade careers.
Building has been a part of Jamie Seeto's life since he was 16 years old when he helped his dad with landscaping work. The moment he stepped foot on a construction site he knew it was what he wanted to do with his life, he enjoys every moment of it.
Jamie originally studied at TAFE Queensland and has since returned to teach carpentry at our Bracken Ridge campus.
"I studied at TAFE Queensland and only have good things to say about it; the quality is second to none, the teachers and staff help you every step of the way, and the resources are extensive," said Jamie.
"You not only get the best education as an apprentice at TAFE Queensland, but you also get to interact with other apprentices and teachers with relevant trade experiences."
"For construction TAFE Queensland offers flexible study options with online, paper based, and on-site assessments. We also use the latest technologies, gear and trends to provide the best, most relevant learning experiences for apprentices."
"TAFE Queensland partners with many manufacturers and suppliers to give our apprentices great exposure to all the tools available in industry. Some of our suppliers include Milwaukee, Fess Tools, Bunnings and more."
His advice for someone who wants to enter a trade is to get stuck into it, work hard, follow instructions, and don't waste valuable learning opportunities on campus, on-site, or with your employer.
"Employers also look for someone who has attention to detail, is punctual, good listener and has communication skills," said Jamie
