subjects, university subjects, VET diplomas and Advanced diplomas

Aidan's career goal is to enter the field of creative writing and become an author.
Aidan's favourite subjects in Year 12 were English and Film, Television and New Media because he enjoyed the challenge both subjects posed and the opportunity to be creative.
Aidan said, “My parents were a source of
constant support throughout Year 12. I’d also like to thank my teachers for
bringing their subjects to life and shaping my educational experience”.
