Meet Pedro, a former SLPET student
I arrived in Australia in March 2015. At first I found it very difficult leaving my family and also due to the language barrier. I received a lot of help from my wife and her family. That is how I was very fortunate to find Navitas English. Navitas gave me the opportunity to undertake the forklift and warehouse course in Fairfield.
This course only took about 3 months and I have to say it was an amazing experience because I not only gained new skills and improved on my English, but also made some friends for life.
I passed the forklift test and obtained my licence. After doing the work placement as part of the forklift course I was offered a job where I am currently working.
The teachers at Navitas have been very helpful and supportive every step of the way and I am very grateful for that and could not have done it without them.
I believe with determination and hard work you will be able to achieve any goal you have your heart set on. The future for me looks bright from here on. I plan to continue studying so I can build a better future myself, my wife and our family.
