“Congratulations to the winners. I look forward to seeing even more TAFE NSW students and teachers from Murray recognised in the future.”

“TAFE NSW is the largest provider of education and training in Australia. With six students and teachers picking up awards this week shows TAFE NSW in Murray is providing our young people with the best opportunities,” Mr Evans said.

“TAFE students are in high demand because of the quality of their education and ability to hit the ground running with relevant and practical skills and I am thrilled to see local students from the public VET provider receive these accolades.

“The NSW Government is delivering on its vision for a strong and publicly owned VET provider through its One TAFE NSW reforms. TAFE NSW students winning these awards demonstrate what is on offer for students if they choose to study at TAFE NSW in Murray.
