TAFE Western is encouraging Year 10 Aboriginal students in the Dubbo district to consider their futures and come along to a special Deadly Skills Day on September 14.
Opportunity Hub Coordinator Diana Turner said the Deadly Skills Day’s aim was to give young Aboriginal students the opportunity to learn more about the hands-on and exciting courses and careers available through TAFE.
“When students reach Year 10 it becomes really important that they start thinking about mapping a path to ensure a successful future,” Ms Turner said.
“This Deadly Skills Day provides TAFE with a chance to showcase what we have to offer, including our vital and easy-to-access support services, for young Aboriginal students that are reaching a critical time in their lives.”
Ms Turner said key components of the Deadly Skills Day would include:
And other activities.
“We have confirmed that Hospitality, Hair and Beauty, Construction, Music, Arts and the Indigenous Police Recruitment Our Way Delivery (IPROWD) sections will all be involved,” Ms Turner said.
“We are encouraging Aboriginal students from right across the region to come along. It will be a low-key affair, there will be no pressure – it’s just a great chance for the students to get a first-hand look at some of the education and training opportunities available at TAFE Western.”
The Deadly Skills Day is on September 14 from 10am to 2pm at TAFE Western’s Myall Street College in Dubbo. Morning tea and lunch will be provided free of charge for participants.
