Deniliquin is set for future-focused Vocational Education and Training with the NSW Government investing more than $6 million in a new industry-leading TAFE NSW Connected Learning Centre (CLC).
The Minister responsible for TAFE NSW, Adam Marshall today visited the site of the proposed CLC, which he announced would be built and operational by July 2018.
Mr Marshall said the new multi-million dollar CLC will significantly enhance TAFE NSW’s presence in Deniliquin and replace outdated facilities with a new digitally enabled facility.
“When opened in July next year the new Deniliquin CLC will mean that students from Deniliquin and surrounds will be able to access potentially double the number of courses currently available, without being forced to travel long distances,” Mr Marshall said.
“Students will be able to learn in state-of-the-art facilities, which connect into the TAFE NSW state-wide network of campuses, capable of reflecting real-world work and social environments.
“With access to a flexible learning and assessment model and a personalised experience, the new CLC will provide students with better access to teachers both on and off site.”
Mr Marshall said TAFE NSW would continue to deliver its current program of education and training services from the existing campus up until the new Deniliquin CLC was operation.
The NSW Government is currently building the first four CLCs in the State at Coonabarabran, Glen Innes, Quirindi and Tenterfield, which will be opened in November this year.
Connected Learning Centres are a core part of the NSW Government’s vision of ensuring TAFE NSW is a world-class, innovative and flexible public provider that will deliver the new technologies and skills to support regional economies and provide the jobs of tomorrow.
