Following a successful and busy enrolment period TAFE Western is now advertising for more teachers. Advertisements seeking expressions of interest for part-time teachers have been placed in media this week.
Director of TAFE Western, Kate Baxter said that the Institute is looking for people who have workplace experience and teaching qualifications to take on classes in quite a variety of different fields and college locations.
"Being a TAFE teacher is an opportunity to help people learn new skills and gain qualifications. It's really rewarding to help people change their lives in this way".
"Teaching is also a good way to make sure you keep your own skills and knowledge up-to-date. It forces you to do some extra reading and research to make sure you own knowledge is current and relevant."
There are minimum qualifications required to be able to teach at TAFE, but for those people who have relevant industry skills and knowledge TAFE Western can assist in obtaining teacher qualifications.
"TAFE Western offers over 400 courses at 24 Colleges in central and western NSW. We also work with industries and organisations to deliver workplace training and assessment. We try to be flexible with our delivery to fulfil the need and aspirations of people across the region".
People interested in becoming a TAFE teacher should check the current vacancies or phone 6393 5953 for more information.
