Merger for new Tafe

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

VO­CA­TIONAL ed­u­ca­tion in Perth’s south­ern cor­ri­dor should be strength­ened by a re­cent shake-up, ac­cord­ing to in­terim man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Terry Du­ran.

Ms Du­ran said merging Chal­lenger In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy and Polytech­nic West to cre­ate South Metropoli­tan Tafe, as part of train­ing sec­tor re­form ini­ti­ated by the State Govern­ment, would mean more choices for stu­dents.

“By bring­ing to­gether two strong names in vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing, South Metropoli­tan Tafe in­cludes 17 cam­puses col­lab­o­rat­ing more closely un­der a sin­gle ad­min­is­tra­tive en­tity that will en­hance the stu­dent ex­pe­ri­ence in terms of train­ing, sup­port ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties,” she said.

Some 40,000 stu­dents are ex­pected to study at south metropoli­tan cam­puses.
