Students get a Taste of TAFE

Taste of TAFE Horticulture

 

Students from Goulburn High School and other High Schools in the region will experience a ‘Taste of TAFE’ with hands-on activities at TAFE Illawarra Goulburn on Wednesday 22 June.

Year 10 to Year 12 students will be provided with information and get to participate in a number of hands-on activities related to their personal interests, skills and selected careers.

Students will have the opportunity to find out about studying a TAFE Vocational Education and Training (TVET) course while still at school and explore mainstream courses available for 2017.

They will also have the opportunity to attend a range of interactive sessions in areas such as: Agriculture and Wool Classing, Animal and Equine Studies, Automotive Transport, Beauty, Business Services, Carpentry and Joinery, Child Studies, Conservation and Land Management, Horticulture, Engineering and Welding, Hairdressing, Information Technology, Tourism and Hospitality, Welfare and Aged Care.

David Guthrey, Manager District Operations – Highlands says a focus of the day is showcasing the career pathways for students.

“The Taste of TAFE experience is all about assisting students with making informed choices about their future study and career options,” says Mr Guthrey.

“It’s a great way for students to find out about the wide range of courses offered by TAFE Illawarra. It will also provide them with an opportunity to discover what skills can take them in a particular direction, or even what vocational courses they may wish to study in senior high school or when they leave school,” he said.

Taste of TAFE events will also take place at Bega, Cooma, Moruya, Moss Vale, Nowra, Queanbeyan, Shellharbour and Wollongong in the coming weeks.
