Joanna Karatzas says that the encouragement and support that she received from TAFE SA led to her receiving a coveted career opportunity in the broadcast industry.

While studying at TAFE SA, Joanna’s lecturers encouraged her to apply for a Women in Broadcast Technology (WiBT) scholarship with ABC Adelaide.

“I was fortunate enough to win the WiBT scholarship, which I completed last year, and it was a fantastic opportunity which allowed me to get a taste for the broadcast industry.”

A few months after completing her scholarship, Joanna was offered a Technologist Traineeship with ABC Adelaide.

Currently completing an Advanced Diploma in Electronics and Communications Engineering at TAFE SA’s Mining, Engineering & Transport Centre while working at the ABC, Joanna says her studies have prepared her for the real-life scenarios that she faces in the workplace every day.

“When I began at ABC Adelaide, I was able to apply the skills I’d learnt at TAFE SA virtually immediately. What we're taught has a real industry focus.”

“I’m very grateful to TAFE SA for the opportunities that I’ve received.”
