TAFE Western Lithgow College will hold a special Open Day on Wednesday, January 18, which will provide potential students with the ideal opportunity to get an up close look at the exciting career options that are available in 2017.
College Team Leader Lynn Hewitt (pictured above) said the Open Day would be held from 9am-6pm, allowing potential students unprecedented access to TAFE Western’s facilities, teachers and support services.
“With a new year comes new opportunities and we’re looking forward to showcasing our world-class facilities, course offerings, employer partnerships and remote learning options, as well as focusing on student success stories and job opportunities,” Ms Hewitt said.
“Lithgow TAFE will have a street stall on Tuesday, January 17 in Cook Plaza from 10am-2pm, where we will give advice on courses and direct people to our Open Day event which will be held the following day (January 18) at the TAFE College.
“There our administration staff will be joined by counsellors, disability consultants, Aboriginal student support officers - as well as representatives from our teaching sections - with lots of displays and information, ensuring that we can offer advice and suitable options to everyone, no matter their age, ability or circumstances.
