Jennifer | Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management

Well, this is a good story! When I came to Australia it was my first college, my first classmates and I’d never forget Alex my first English teacher. I did General English Nov/2015 and also, IELTS course. After that, I came back because the last college had been closed, so always QAT was my first option to study.

Actually, every single friend who asks about where to study English, I always recommend this college. I just finished my Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management and I learned a lot, most in leadership that for all business is important to get skills of leadership and one of my dreams is to start my own business.

Thank you QAT for always opening the doors for me. Always in my heart. Big hug to Kelly and Javier.

Ricardo Richardson | Leadership and Management

Studying Leadership and Management at QAT has definitely been a refreshing experience thus far. I found myself yearning to learn more and aspiring to do more with the knowledge and information gained from each class. This is merely a result of having a remarkable trainer, who is enthusiastic and diligent with her efforts of providing a dynamic class experience. Motivating you to envision yourself as manager as you work through the assessments, issuing thought provoking scenarios and instilling confidence into each student in a unique way. I am proud to say that I am a by-product of the QAT experience and it has inspired me to pursue further studies in Business Management.
