NSW Nationals Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh is encouraging school leavers and jobseekers to explore their vocational training at the annual TAFE NSW InfoFest showcase from January 18-22.
With the recent announcement of the hundreds of fee-free and low-cost courses under the NSW Nationals in the state government’s JobTrainer program, there’s never been a better time to consider vocational education and training options.
Mr Singh said TAFE NSW students were in high demand because of the quality of their education, and ability to hit the ground running with the job-ready skills that employers are looking for.
“Visitors to local and online information sessions and campus tours during InfoFest will learn more about how studying at TAFE NSW can ensure that they have the right skills for the jobs of tomorrow,” Mr Singh said.
“InfoFest will provide prospective students with an invaluable opportunity to explore the innovative range of course options, join interactive workshops, meet with industry-expert teachers, and experience the practical, state-of-the-art facilities at TAFE NSW.
“I encourage people to visit Coffs Harbour’s TAFE NSW campuses between January 18 and 22 or visit www.tafensw.edu.au/infofest for further information and online information sessions.”
TAFE NSW is Australia’s largest provider of training for in-demand and emerging skills. Industries like information technology, aged care, and construction are looking for job-ready, industry-trained graduates. With short courses in coding and digital security, through to bachelor degrees in early childhood, TAFE NSW is an obvious choice for people looking to secure their first job, win a promotion, or embark on a career change.
