Marly was in year 11 at Emmanuel College when she started her VET DSS studies and felt so inspired by her teachers at South West TAFE.
“I had always had an interest in hair since I was young and the teachers at South West TAFE were so enthusiastic that it confirmed that hairdressing was what I wanted to do,” she said.
Marly said she really enjoyed the different style of learning at TAFE and encouraged anyone thinking about VET DSS to give it a go.
“I loved VET DSS and the teachers really pushed us and gave us a taste of what we could be doing.
“We also learnt so many practical skills that I was able to put into practise into my part-time work in a salon,” she said.
Marly has now almost finished the first year of her apprenticeship at Hair at Red Studio and is loving her new career direction.
“VET DSS was great. I love what I’m doing right now. One day I might do more study on the beauty side of things but I’m really enjoying my apprenticeship right now,” she said.
