Hawkesbury School Leavers to Get Career Headstart at TAFE NSW Virtual Open Day

As the HSC approaches, school leavers across the state are getting ready to take a break from the books to log-on to the inaugural TAFE NSW Virtual Open Day.

The first of its kind, the virtual event will combat social distancing barriers to ensure that prospective students don’t miss out on the opportunity to meet TAFE NSW teachers and explore the state-of-the-art facilities on 9 and 10 September.

TAFE NSW Regional General Manager Michael Cullen said that school leavers, and their parents and guardians, will have unprecedented access to teachers from 60 course areas that are available for study across the state.

“The innovative virtual format of this event means that anyone who is considering their career options doesn’t need to travel to explore absolutely every opportunity available to them at TAFE NSW.

“COVID-19 has undoubtedly presented challenges for the Class of 2020 and I want to reassure school leavers that the pandemic isn’t an obstacle to getting the skills they need to pursue the career of their dreams.

“TAFE NSW is leading the vocational education sector by ensuring that all students continue to have access to training and information in a COVID-safe environment.”

Visitors to the event can connect one-on-one with teachers, take 360 tours of facilities, observe practical demonstrations, and access student support service and scholarship information in a virtual exhibition hall.

Mr Cullen said that Accountants, Business administrators and program developers are forecasted to be in demand over the course of the next twelve months and now is the time to consider the qualifications required to pursue employment opportunities.

“The Western Sydney infrastructure boom is also set to create thousands of jobs in trades areas including construction, plumbing and electrical, which is why TAFE NSW is building a state-of-the-art Construction Hub to ensure students are prepared for the jobs of the future,” My Cullen said.

“TAFE NSW graduates are in high demand because of the quality of their education and ability to hit the ground running with the job-ready skills that employers are looking for.”
