Wagga Wagga School Leavers to Get Career Headstart at TAFE NSW Virtual Event

VIRTUAL REALITY: TAFE NSW Hospitality Teacher Cherie Hubbard encourages students from across the region to get a running start on their careers at next week’s TAFE NSW Open Day, being held virtually for the first time this year.
As the HSC approaches, school leavers across the Riverina 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 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 Belinda Mackinnon said school leavers and their parents and guardians would 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 anyone who is considering their career options doesn’t need to travel to explore absolutely every opportunity available to them at TAFE NSW,” Ms Mackinnon said.

“COVID-19 has undoubtedly presented challenges for the Class of 2020 and I want to reassure school leavers 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 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.

Ms Mackinnon said jobs including sales assistant, accountant, business administration and kitchenhand were forecast to be in demand over the course of the next 12 months in the Riverina and now was the time to consider the qualifications required to pursue employment opportunities.

“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,” Ms Mackinon said.
