NSW Nationals Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis has officially opened TAFE NSW’s first permanent presence in Yamba, the new multi-million dollar Connected Learning Centre.

Mr Gulaptis described the opening of the CLC as a monumental day for TAFE NSW.

“Advocating for new and expanded educational opportunities for locals is something I am very passionate about, and it’s terrific to see TAFE NSW has established its first permanent presence in our community through the new CLC,” Mr Gulaptis said.

“This investment will open up new opportunities for education and training in the region and demonstrates the Nationals in Government’s commitment to Yamba and surrounding communities in the Lower Clarence.

“Local TAFE NSW students can study a range of new courses such as the Certificate IV in Ageing Support, Statement of Events Coordination and Diploma of Conservation and Land Management.”

Supported by Mobile Training Units and learning technologies including simulation and augmented reality, the new CLC will deliver the practical training TAFE NSW is known for and set students up for success in the workplace.

Enrolments are now open in a wide range of new courses – so there is no better time to get in and experience these amazing facilities.

CLCs are a key initiative of the NSW Government’s One TAFE reforms which enable TAFE NSW to deliver modern, flexible and industry relevant training across regional NSW.
