The Cootamundra electorate has received a share of the NSW Nationals in the state government’s $10 million investment in state-of-the-art technology for TAFE NSW classrooms, providing students with the best possible opportunity to learn.
Nationals Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said this latest investment is part of a state-wide program delivering technology upgrades to over 1,500 learning spaces across 134 regional, rural, and metropolitan TAFE NSW campuses this year.
The Cootamundra electorate has received a $160,000 investment for 155 new devices across the Cootamundra, Narrandera, Temora, Young and Cowra campuses.
Each new model computer will come equipped with a keyboard, mouse and a large 27-inch monitor with the capability to view several windows at once.
“The NSW Government is investing in new equipment at TAFE NSW campuses across the state to ensure students have the digital skills they need to gain employment,” Ms Cooke said.
“The classroom asset refresh program is testament to the NSW Government’s commitment to TAFE NSW and delivering the pipeline of skilled workers industry needs.”
“Upgrading technology across our state-wide network of campuses is key to helping students get jobs, and supporting the NSW economy into the future,” Ms Cooke said.
