Wodonga TAFE is going from strength and strength, which is great news for our region – for young people seeking skills, employers, and the wider community.
It was a pleasure to be at the official opening for the Wodonga TAFE Trades Training Centre recently, where we were able to see how the state-of-the-art facility was training the builder, carpenters, electricians and plumbers of the future.
The $8.5 million building is training up to 140 students a day and includes modern classrooms alongside practical, hands-on training aids and simulations. It was a joint-funding effort by Wodonga TAFE, and the federal and state governments.
Wodonga TAFE has also signed a $300 million five-year agreement with the Department of Defence to provide technical trade training to ADF personnel.
This is a huge boost for our region and a vote of confidence in Wodonga TAFE.
More than 100 accredited and non-accredited courses will be delivered for the construction, engineering, mechanical, electrical and electronics trades, which will benefit more than 2,000 students per year.
Congratulations Wodonga TAFE on these massive achievements!
