MORE career pathways will be available to the 68 Barrier Reef Institute of TAFE students that graduated last Friday.

The graduates included local and international students who were studying diplomas and certificates in a variety of subjects such as hospitality, retail services and business administration.

For some students this was a welcome relief after a year or two of studying.

Emily McDonald has been studying at TAFE while undertaking a one year traineeship with Tourism Whitsundays and has now completed her Certificate III in Business Administration. She said it was good to have a qualification under her belt.

"It will definitely help me with my future career," she said.

Business administrator teacher Bryony Venter said her students were an absolutely fabulous bunch.

"They have stepped up to the mark when required and did really well in the work they submitted," she said.
