“Mandy retired in 2016 but decided that she wanted to re-enter the workforce, choosing to update her administration skills at TAFE NSW Broken Hill. Right throughout her studies she was a model student and someone her classmates and peers would turn to for advice and assistance – emphasising her outstanding leadership qualities.”

“Mental Health Month is celebrated Australia-wide every October so we thought it was the perfect opportunity to hold a casual and fun event, that also helps raise awareness about a very prevalent subject."
“National Skills Week is about engaging our community. If we spark an interest in training, we can develop skills that contribute to the development of our economy and the communities in which we live.”
“The program has come a long way since we first delivered it to a group of 15 TAFE NSW Automotive apprentices in March last year."
“Our administration and teaching staff will be joined by counsellors, disability consultants and Aboriginal support staff - as well as representatives from our teaching sections - ensuring that we can offer advice and options to everyone, no matter their age, ability or circumstances."
For the students, these courses are attractive because they feature hands-on learning and provide exciting workplace and international opportunities.”
