Colin's Success Story

Colin from Malaysia

Colin from Malaysia

Studied Cookery and Hospitality

Hi, I am Colin, I’m from Malaysia and I study Cookery and Hospitality at QAT. My dream is to work in a reputable kitchen with knowledgeable staff in order to up-skill my Kitchen Career Path, especially in Patisseries which I am most passionate about.

Since the beginning of my studies, I have gained a lot of knowledge towards my dream career. I received invaluable knowledge from QAT, such as some real life workplace experiences from skilful trainers. They showed their best efforts to teach me all the skills they have learnt. I have to thank and appreciate the help from QAT since the beginning and til the end of my studies. At QAT, I once requested to my trainers that I wanted to learn something more about pastries and they did not hesitate to help me and provide me with an opportunity to work as a pastry apprentice at the Sofitel Hotel.

After an exciting long journey with QAT and the work opportunity they provided me, I have finally received a job offer to work as a Commis Pastry Chef at the Sofitel in Brisbane Central. I am so grateful to work with this company, and I know that it would not have happened if I did not meet my respectful trainers (Mr Ken and Mr Vincent) and with QAT’s help.

I have now applied for a Graduate Visa and will apply for my Permanent Residence in the future.

Thank you QAT, I truly appreciated all of your help.
