TAFE Wellington is opening up it's roster of classes to include learning opportunities in areas like business administration, tourism and I.T. with the aid of a new regional and remote education program called Western Connect.
The Connect program will allow classes that otherwise would have been discontinued due to low class size in rural and regional areas to continue through video conferencing technology.
Classes that use the Western Connect structure will combine practical, hands-on sessions with classes set up to teleconference with other, larger classes across Western NSW.
Deputy Regional General Manager, Adam Bennett, said TAFE NSW will continue to invest in technological solutions in order to provide regional students with the skills they need to attain employment.
"This is an example of how Australia's largest training provider responds to the skills needs of the communities that it serves by delivering innovative learning solutions," Mr Bennett said.
"What is so exciting about these courses is they are responsive, focused on job readiness and tailored to industry needs to ensure that our students have the right skills for the career they want."
"There has never been a better time to study with TAFE NSW where students can access convenient and practical training right here in Wellington."
