Meet Erin

High School wasn’t for me and I discovered that UOW College offered a fitness course I could study after completing year 10. UOW College taught me skills in not only the fitness industry but skills within myself to be the best person I can be for my future. The teachers made everything very relatable to real life and have set me up for the future.ERINCertificate III and IV in Fitness
