The Great Lakes and Manning Valley communities will be able to discover TAFE NSW’s 2017 approach to high-quality education and training and explore future career opportunities at North Coast TAFE’s Open Week at its Great Lakes and Taree campuses from January 16-21.
North Coast TAFE will be joining with nine other TAFE institutes across more than 130 campuses throughout NSW, to collectively highlight TAFE NSW’s extensive facilities, course offerings, employer partnerships, world-class training and technology. Students will be able to talk to graduates and discuss job opportunities.
Open Week will be the first time TAFE NSW holds a collaborative state-wide event that is expected to attract more than 40,000 people.
The week will feature live activations and demonstrations as well as interactive signature events, such as animal care students working at a wildlife sanctuary and hospital, a virtual band rehearsal enabling interaction with recording artists, games development and a robotics demonstration, all of which will be live-streamed through Facebook.
TAFE’s Leader of Community and Business Engagement for the Manning-Great Lakes region, Maura Luxford, says, “Whether you’re looking for a career in technology, fashion, horticulture, aged care or construction, come and discover TAFE NSW’s vast array of courses, of which there are more than 1,200 from certificates to degrees. This is a great opportunity to receive one-on-one course advice, meet teachers, see live demonstrations, go on campus tours and learn how TAFE NSW, the State’s leading education and skills training provider, can help secure you a job and find a career you love.”
“The world is changing and TAFE NSW is evolving with it. We are investing in the future of education with innovative technology for learning which ensures our students are job-ready wherever they live or work,” she says.
During Open Week, a signature event for the Manning-Great Lakes region will be at Taree Campus on Thursday January 19, 10am to 6pm.
Open Day will be an opportunity talk to teachers, job services, engage in fun interactive activities, explore the campus, and enjoy our new enterprise café and music by the Jay Davis Trio.
