TASMANIANS will have the chance to find out more about TasTAFE qualifications and courses at the TasTAFE Open Day on Saturday 19 September.
TasTAFE acting chief executive officer Gail Eaton-Briggs said the Open Day was an opportunity for people to “get a handle on” the study pathways and qualifications needed to get into their chosen career.
“We’ll be opening our campus at 59 Collins Street, Hobart (Drysdale Campus) so that people can come along and find out what types of courses and qualifications are on offer and talk to staff who can provide advice on learning and training options,” she said.
“A highlight of the day will be interactive displays across areas like health and aged care, and construction.
“These were extremely popular at Agfest where TasTAFE was awarded best trade display.
“For people who are already working, it’s a chance to explore study options for career advancements or enrol in a qualification that could change their career.
“We also offer courses that will give people a head start in applying for jobs, as well as pre-employment courses that can give students credit towards an apprenticeship or traineeship.”
As the largest public provider of vocational education and training (VET) in Tasmania, TasTAFE offers more than 370 qualifications across a wide variety of industry areas from business and ICT to construction, cookery and hospitality, and health and aged care.
“No matter where people are in life, it’s likely that TasTAFE will have a course for them,” Ms Eaton-Briggs said.
The TasTAFE Open will run from 10am until 1pm on Saturday 19 September at the TasTAFE Drysdale Campus, 59 Collins Street, Hobart.
