For Matt Bryant being visually impaired has brought its own set of challenges.
But it hasn't stopped him from getting the job-ready skills at TAFE NSW to work in the IT sector at the Optus Business Centre Central West.
"As I'm blind, I chose to learn more about working with computers and programs as I knew that this was a field that would suit me," Matt Bryant said.
"I can't speak highly enough of TAFE NSW and their ability to customise the training to meet my needs by providing one-on-one teaching and the flexibility of being able to learn over an extended period."
TAFE NSW graduate Clint Grevink said he had an interest in the IT industry and TAFE NSW helped him get qualified.
"I have learnt practical skills and knowledge that I use every day in my role to help tailor solutions for local businesses, such as trouble shooting and problem solving, critical thinking and advanced networking," he said.
"The IT industry is constantly evolving and TAFE NSW offers a range of IT courses that enable you to get the skills and experience to keep up with emerging technology and industry trends."
Optus Business Centre director Adam Sawtell said that versatile TAFE NSW graduates like Mr Bryant and Mr Grevink are highly sought after in the industry.
"The diversity and emergence of new roles in the IT sector means that with the right qualifications, IT specialists and administration professionals could have a multitude of different careers in the one field," he said.
"So far, Matt and Clint have been able to branch out into different parts of the business and assist areas that are experiencing a shortage of skilled workers."
