The Great Lakes community is invited to visit the Tuncurry TAFE campus facility during enrolment week to explore a range of study options in 2018. 

The week will run from January 15 to 20 and includes information sessions, campus tours and pop-up stalls.

TAFE NSW regional general manager Marie Larkings said the week gave students an opportunity to discover what course may be of interest.

“TAFE NSW offers over 1200 courses in a range of critical areas in-demand from industry and provides students with the training they need to secure a job,” Ms Larkings said.

“At TAFE NSW, students can study when, where and what they want and are supported by a talented community of career advisors, counsellors and teachers.”

Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead said studying at TAFE gave  school leavers an opportunity to consider career options.

“TAFE provides great training which leads to jobs, it is interesting to note that some of the higher paid workers across our community are those trademen and women who have studied an apprenticeship through TAFE.

“The NSW Government provides significant subsidies for a range of courses at TAFE NSW, ensuring students can undertake the studies they need to find a job without having to graduate with a huge debt.

“I encourage all members of the community to go along to Taree TAFE next week to take a look at the exciting vocational education and training options available to them,” Mr Bromhead said.

For those who can’t attend, signature events from around the state will be live-streamed to the TAFE NSW Facebook page throughout the week, with extended hours and extra activities for ‘TAFE Tuesday’ at select campuses. 

TAFE NSW Enrolment Week 2017 attracted more than 10,000 atendees to 1300 events, with a further 26,000 people watching online via Facebook Live events.
