THE investment in Wyong TAFE is part of a $300 million state-wide program delivering upgraded facilities and equipment to over 120 TAFE NSW campuses across the state this financial year.

 

TAFE NSW Wyong will receive:

 

  • A new specialist animal studies facility; and

 

  • new digital devices for teachers and students.

 

This funding is part of the NSW Government’s record $2.131 billion investment in TAFE NSW through the 2023-24 NSW Budget.

 

David Harris Member for Wyong said, “TAFE NSW Wyong education qualifications are an effective and efficient learning pathway for students to evolve into highly competent industry-ready graduates.

 

“TAFE NSW Wyong delivers critical skills training in areas such as veterinary nursing, plumbing, electrotechnology, and health.

 

“When students learn their craft or trade using industry-standard equipment and high-quality technology, they are much more likely to graduate with the kind of job-ready skills that employers are looking for.

 

“Wyong has a long history of animal related industry through its rich rural heritage.”

 

Steve Whan, Minister for Skills, TAFE and Tertiary Education said, “the investment in equipment at the TAFE NSW Wyong campus, will set up local trade's apprentices and healthcare students for further success while supporting the Central Coast’s critical skills needs.

 

“Students and teachers need to have functional classrooms and access to equipment to learn the skills they need to be job-ready.

 

“This investment ensures TAFE NSW is well-placed to meet the educational and employment needs of the local community.

 

“The NSW Labor Government’s continued investment in TAFE NSW will improve educational outcomes and support the state’s critical skills needs.

 

“Stories about neglected classrooms don’t help to attract the people we need to see taking on training or teaching. The NSW Government is doing something about it.”
