Landmark regional TAFE expansion from Nationals in Government.
More people from the bush will be able to access the TAFE training they need to get a job and get ahead thanks to a landmark regional TAFE expansion project by the Nationals in Government.
The Nationals in Government will construct new TAFE campuses in regional and rural locations where there has never been a major TAFE presence before.
This represents one of the largest ever expansions of TAFE NSW’s footprint across rural and regional NSW.
TAFE campuses are the beating hearts of our country communities and provide essential access to the education and training people need to enter the workforce or score their next promotion.
With more campuses across the State more people from the bush will be given improved access to TAFE and the ability to study right in their hometown.
The new campuses will be digitally-powered facilities that will allow students to tap into TAFE NSW’s state-wide network of campuses and teachers to access a broader array of courses than what would normally be on offer.
With 700,000 free TAFE courses on offer over the next four years and new TAFE campuses in the pipeline there’s never been a better time for people to take up vocational education and training.
The NSW Nationals have a strong history of expanding TAFE’s presence across the State.
Since 2017 The Nationals have delivered 14 new or upgraded campuses in rural and regional NSW.
By contrast, NSW Labor has a woeful record on TAFE in regional NSW with no plans whatsoever to deliver new TAFE campuses in the bush.
The Nationals in Government will construct new TAFE campuses in:
• Byron Bay
• Nambucca Heads
• West Wyalong
