TAFE branches out on Facebook
TAFE NSW Riverina Institute’s Aboriginal Education and Training team joined the social media revolution in NAIDOC Week.
The team provides support to Aboriginal people in their educational journey and is committed to working with Aboriginal communities to deliver the best possible training programs that lead to jobs for students.
‘‘Our Facebook page is another way of reaching out and engaging with people in our communities,’’ Riverina Institute Aboriginal Programs Manager Sonia Shea said.
Ms Shea said the Aboriginal Education and Training Facebook page will enable Aboriginal people across the region to engage with each other and will provide a forum for sharing, learning and ideas generation.
‘‘We want to share our stories and the learning journeys of our students,’’ she said.
‘‘But we also want to engage with our communities and hear their thoughts and views on education and training.’’
Ms Shea said NAIDOC Week was the perfect time to launch this page ‘‘in the spirit of collectiveness and togetherness’’.
The Aboriginal Education and Training Facebook page was launched Wednesday, July 4.
