The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for TAFE NSW Adam Mar­shall and Mem­ber for Al­bury Greg Aplin of­fi­cially opened the new $3.7 mil­lion cen­tre on Fri­day.

Mr Mar­shall said the CLC would sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease the num­ber of cour­ses avail­able to stu­dents and in­dus­try in Corowa and the re­gion as a whole.

“The NSW Gov­ern­ment is in­vest­ing in TAFE NSW, here in Corowa and right across the state,” Mr Mar­shall said.

“The Corowa CLC is one in a se­ries of mod­ern ed­u­ca­tion fa­cil­i­ties, which will ex­pand the reach of TAFE NSW in the re­gions and in­crease the cour­ses and train­ing op­tions avail­able.

“The Corowa CLC has more than tripled the num­ber of cour­ses avail­able to lo­cal stu­dents, with many more to come in the fu­ture.

“The new TAFE NSW fa­cil­i­ties here in Corowa are a win not only for the lo­cal com­mu­nity,

Stu­dents in Corowa will now have the op­tion to com­plete their ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing close to home with the open­ing of the new­est TAFE NSW Con­nected Learn­ing Cen­tre (CLC).

but also for the wider re­gion, help­ing more lo­cal peo­ple get the skills they need for the re­gion’s jobs of to­mor­row.”

Mr Aplin said the new fa­cil­ity would re­duce the need for lo­cal stu­dents to travel as far as Can­berra to study, mean­ing more young peo­ple can stay in the com­mu­nity. “This mul­ti­mil­lion in­vest­ment in ed­u­ca­tion is an ab­so­lute game-changer for lo­cal stu­dents and demon­strates how the NSW Gov­ern­ment is de­liv­er­ing for the re­gion.”

“Lo­cal TAFE NSW stu­dents can now ac­cess flex­i­ble learn­ing tech­nolo­gies to study the huge range of new cour­ses in Corowa, in­clud­ing a Cer­tifi­cate II in Early Child­hood Ed­u­ca­tion and Care, a Cer­tifi­cate IV in Com­mer­cial Cook­ery and a Di­ploma in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion – all of­fered lo­cally for the first time.

“These new cour­ses are backed up by a full-range of Mo­bile Train­ing Units that will de­liver the qual­ity prac­ti­cal train­ing TAFE NSW is known for, con­sis­tent with in­dus­try stan­dards.”

CLCs are a key ini­tia­tive of the NSW Gov­ern­ment’s ONE TAFE NSW re­forms that will en­able TAFE NSW to de­liver mod­ern, flex­i­ble and in­dus­try rel­e­vant train­ing across re­gional NSW. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www. tafensw.edu.au/clc.
