TAFE Queensland will welcome an influx of new students to its Bundaberg campus next week, as classes begin for 2021.
But as their newest enrolments excitedly begin their journey to achieving their career goals, TAFE Queensland is reassuring locals who have not yet solidified their study plans that it’s not too late to turn their resolutions into reality.
TAFE Queensland will be holding an orientation day at its Bundaberg campus on Wednesday, 27 January.
The aim is to assist enrolled students on their first day and provide prospective students with a final chance to tour the campus, gather information about courses and funding, and enrol in time for first semester.
TAFE Queensland general manager (East Coast region) Ana Rodger said returning to study can be daunting, whether you’ve been in the workforce for years or have only just graduated from high school, but there has never been a better time to get started.
“Whether you are preparing to enter the workforce for the first time, are craving a change in career, or want to develop your skills in order to advance up the workplace ladder, TAFE Queensland offers a variety of pathways that can help you start achieving your 2021 career goals here and now,” Ms Rodger said.
“The State Government’s free TAFE and JobTrainer funding initiatives also mean training is more affordable than ever, with eligible Queenslanders now able to complete selected qualifications for free or low cost.”
Ms Rodger said funding such as JobTrainer assists school leavers and job seekers in entering high priority skills areas, such as healthcare, mental health, community services, and early childhood – which according to data released by LinkedIn this week, are among the top 15 jobs on the rise in 2020/21.
“As the state’s largest and most experienced training provider, TAFE Queensland is committed to providing locals with the quality, hands-on training they need to succeed, while fulfilling industry demand,” Ms Rodger said.
“Our Orientation Day is a great opportunity for the public to gain course information and enrol in time for Semester 1 2021 so they can start pursuing their passion and make the most of the growth in these industries sooner rather than later.”
