When I finished year 10 there was an offer for students to go to a short workshop at the Queensland Institute of Graphic Art and I went and really enjoyed it, learned a fair bit in the time I was there. Also they do a lot of industry work there and I think they give work experience. At the end we all got offers to come and study there the following year, but as I hadn’t finished year 12 I couldn’t enroll. This could be a possibility for me to think about again now that I will have some equivalent certificates.
