Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways and Certificate I in Access to Work and Training were TAFE Western Mudgee College’s most popular courses in 2015, Institute Director Kate Baxter revealed today.
Ms Baxter said both courses received high enrolments because they helped students develop employability skills to get a job or go on to further training/education.
“These courses are perfect for people who require a pathway to employment or vocational training or those who have experienced barriers or interruptions to education due to cultural or language differences, poor health or isolation,” Ms Baxter said.
“Course offerings are tailored to each students’ individual needs and their popularity in Mudgee is because both courses equip students with important skills that can help secure positive outcomes such as employment or further study.”

Ms Baxter said enrolments for 2016 at TAFE Western are now being accepted and changes to eligibility for Smart and Skilled will make it easier to access courses next year.
“In some instances training will be fee-free,” Ms Baxter said. “Changes to Smart and Skilled will provide easier and more affordable access to quality education and training options for thousands of people in the central west,” she said.
“For school leavers, people considering a new career or those simply needing to brush up on their skills, there’s never been a better time to consider TAFE.”
