Brodie sets his sights on a career in the Air Force

/ Success Story
Brodie Kelp is hoping the skills he is learning as part of his VET in Schools course will set him up for a successful career in the Air Force.

The Emmanuel College student enrolled in a Certificate II in Hospitality when he was in year 11 and hasn’t looked back since.

“It has been such a great program. Our teacher has been excellent and it has been such a different experience to how we learn at school,” he said.

Brodie has hopes to join the Air Force when he finishes year 12 at the end of this year and said the skills he was learning would help him in any future career.

“I just loved hospitality but this course has given me skills in bookwork and ethics on top of all of the practical skills you learn,” he said.

Brodie said he would recommend the course to anyone who was interested in starting a VETiS course.

“The practical aspect is the best part. You get great teachers and an experience which is so different from school. The skills you gain can lead you on to anything,” he said.
