From School to TAFE

Pathways to careers and higher education

TAFE provides many interesting pathways to employment, careers and higher education.  TAFE Western training is aligned to job opportunities and community needs. Training is delivered in Colleges (24 in Central and Western NSW) and in workplaces. Modern communication technologies (like the Internet and Video Conferencing) are used to support students and improve access to training.

The NSW Government legislated to increase the school leaving age from 2010. Full time study at TAFE is a great option for those who would like to leave school after completing their School Certificate.

TAFE also offers workforce training for those choosing to stay at school to complete their HSC. Check out the TVET courses offered in your area or find out about School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships.

TAFE study and qualifications can also be a pathway to University.

TAFE also offers Career Counselling services for people who looking for advice about courses and careers that will suit them.
