MEMBER for Northern Tablelands and Minister responsible for TAFE NSW Adam Marshall today announced a raft of exciting upgrades at TAFE NSW Boggabilla Campus, ahead of a special community relaunch.
Mr Marshall said the exciting changes, which followed close engagement with the community and local industry, would dramatically transform and improve the education and training opportunities students can access through TAFE NSW in Boggabilla.
“There will be a huge increase in the number of courses available locally, but also a number of changes to the day-to-day operations of the campus which is a fantastic win for the local community,” Mr Marshall said.
“From next year onwards, for the first time, there will be a full-time staff member at Boggabilla, as well as an increased opportunities for students and teachers to connect to flexible training delivered across the region using state-of-the-art technology.
“For too long potential students from Boggabilla have had to travel long distances to study through TAFE NSW, with Moree the closest campus.
“The NSW Government is investing in the future of TAFE NSW, and this is just one example of how we are delivering facilities which will significantly improve the customer experience for students and industry in country NSW.”
Mr Marshall said the re-launch of TAFE in Boggabilla followed the recent success of the work of the Australian Army in the Toomelah community, which had inspired many locals to seek out training opportunities to gain employment.
Enrolments for 2018 are now being accepted in a range of new subjects at Boggabilla including:
• Aboriginal Sites;
• Aboriginal Languages;
• Business Administration;
• Early Childhood Education and Care;
• Individual Support; and
