InfoFest events being held at TAFE campuses in Wollongong, West Wollongong, Shellharbour and Yallah next week, are ideal for school leavers exploring their vocational education options.
TAFE NSW regional general manager, Jonathan Davis added with the announcement of fee-free traineeships and apprenticeships by the NSW Government together with Smart and Skilled funding, there had never been a better time to consider vocational education and training options.
"Courses for nine of the 10 most in-demand jobs are already being delivered by TAFE NSW," he said.
"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.
"With entry level courses to bachelor degrees in areas such as early childhood education, information technology and business, choosing TAFE NSW is an obvious choice for people looking to secure their first job, win a promotion or endeavor on a career change."
Mr Davis said that visitors to local and online information sessions and campus tours during InfoFest will learn more about how studying one of over 1200 courses at TAFE NSW can turbocharge their career.
"InfoFest will provide prospective students with an invaluable opportunity to explore the innovative range of course options, meet with award winning teachers and explore the practical, hands-on facilities at TAFE NSW," he said.
"I encourage anyone who is considering learning a new skill to visit their local TAFE NSW facility between January 20-24 or visit www.tafensw.edu.au for further information and online information sessions."
