School leavers are encouraged to explore their vocational education options at the TAFE NSW Deniliquin InfoFest next week.
TAFE NSW regional general manager Jonathan Davis said considering the announcement of fee-free traineeships and apprenticeships by the NSW Government, together with Smart and Skilled funding, there’s never been a better time to consider vocational education and training options.
‘‘Industries across the state, such as construction, nursing and hospitality, are experiencing skills shortages, which means that now is the time for people to get the qualification they need for the job they want,’’ he said.
‘‘With entry level courses to bachelor degrees in areas such as early childhood education, information technology and business, choosing TAFE is an obvious choice for people looking to secure their first job, win a promotion or endeavour on a career change.
‘‘TAFE students are 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.’’
Mr Davis said visitors to local and online information sessions and campus tours during InfoFest, from January 20 to 24, will learn more about how studying one of over 1,200 courses can ‘‘turbocharge their career’’.
