Refurbishment of Taree TAFE Allied Health facilities to begin
Member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead MP has announced that the refurbishment of the allied health facilities at Taree TAFE College has moved forward, with an architect selected for the project.
Mr Bromhead said that following extensive consultation, refurbishment of the facility will begin this year now that an architect is preparing designs for this important project.
“The health facilities will service the growing needs of the nursing and allied health sectors in the Manning Valley,” Mr Bromhead said.
“This is particularly important as Taree TAFE has seen increased demand for its nursing courses, as school leavers and other students are attracted by the work and employment prospects that are offered in NSW.”
Minister for Skills John Barilaro welcomed this project at Taree and said that investment in training facilities at the site were crucial to building the skills base in the region.
“This year the NSW Government will invest $100 million into projects that will provide TAFE with state-of-the-art facilities across NSW,” Mr Barilaro said.
“Stage one of the Taree campus upgrade is completed, with improved services for students including a refurbished library and new learning hub, improved trade facilities to support apprentices and students in automotive and primary industries,” he said.
In addition to the new health facilities, there will also be investment at Taree to refurbish other facilities into multi-purpose spaces. This will provide students with improved services and learning environments in areas such as Aboriginal Learning, Digital Media and Information Technology Research and Development.
