Maria's Success Story

Studied Diploma of Early Childhood Education & Care

Hi, my name is Maria Paula.

I would like to share my successful journey with QAT throughout COVID19 restricted time. In August 2019, I have started Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care at QAT. I have done my first placement at KIDS ELC2 and I was trying to apply all of my knowledge and experience that I gained from QAT. Therefore I was referred by Lead Educator to Centre Director which offered ma a casual job by end of 2019. However, I cannot continue my work due to COVID 19, I stopped to work from March 2020. Since then I have studied with my passion and tried to engage with my knowledge and practical experience. All QAT staff encourage me a lot to be prepared for next opportunity. Finally in July 2020, I have received an offer to work at Taigum KIDS ELS 1 as a permanent part-time. Without support from QAT staff, I could not achieved it.

Thank you QAT.
