- Skills needs and mismatchesTeaching and training
Before I applied for logistics VET, I wanted to be a cook, but I discovered it’s not for me - it reminds me of a difficult period in my life. I thought a lot about what would suit me best and some people I know recommended logistics.
When I began to learn about logistics through my coursework, I realised that logistics aren’t so ’far’ from my interests and talents. I learned many new things. I was worried that I would fall behind compared to the others but, in the end, I managed to catch up with them.
There were some familiar subjects that I learned about while studying cooking such as economics. In November, we had the opportunity to visit the Budapest Airport. The trip was long and tiring, but it was worth it. I really enjoyed it, even though I didn’t want to go at first because I get carsick.
In December, we visited a metal manufacturing company called Jura-Plussz Ltd. We got insight into the daily activities of the company, the materials they process, and how many people work there.
My favourite part was when I got to press one of the buttons on a machine. I can tell that logistics is for me, and I can imagine myself being a logistician in the future. I have improved a lot since September, becoming much more experienced and skilled.
