“I just wanted to be a mum and had no career ambitions. I wasn’t interested in doing any programs as I was too busy with my kids.

I attended ParentsNext at OCTEC in Tamworth and met my consultant Beth. She began to change my outlook. We discussed what my future could look like. I started to think about studying and creating a career.

I realised I could be a mum and have a career. With the help of OCTEC ParentsNext I was able to gain a Certificate III in Pathology and found employment with NSW Health Pathology.”

– Grace, ParentsNext Participant
