A surge in interest in the Certificate I in Information, Digital Media and Technology saw it become TAFE NSW Wellington’s most popular course in 2017, Regional General Manager Kate Baxter revealed today.
Ms Baxter said the Certificate I in Information, Digital Media and Technology had narrowly overtaken last year’s most popular course, the Certificate I in Skills for Vocational Pathways, with the Certificate II in Construction an extremely popular choice in third.
“The Certificate I in Information, Digital Media and Technology not only experienced a huge spike in interest and enrolments in Wellington, this was reflected right across western NSW,” Ms Baxter said.
“This popularity is driven by increasing industry demand, and because our students enjoy learning from industry experts. The fact that employers trust our training, which can lead to exciting, real-life employment prospects in administration and IT is also a telling factor.”
Ms Baxter noted that interest in the Certificate III in Business Administration remained strong in 2017, while the Certificate III in Hospitality was the big mover, becoming the fifth most popular course in Wellington.

Ms Baxter said enrolments for 2018 at TAFE NSW were open now, and would be accepted right across the Christmas period.
“TAFE NSW has more than 1200 courses to choose from – so there’s something for everyone no matter where you live, your skill level or qualifications,” Ms Baxter said.
“With so many exciting options, and with research revealing that TAFE NSW graduates have a higher median income and employment rate than university graduates, there’s never been a better time to consider TAFE.”
