There’s been significant change at TAFE NSW Mudgee, with the Certificate III in Early Childhood and Education and Care course taking over as most popular in 2017.
Regional General Manager Kate Baxter today revealed the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care had replaced the Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways course at the top.
“The Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care was not only extremely popular in Mudgee, it’s actually TAFE NSW’s most popular course in western NSW,” Ms Baxter said.
“This popularity is driven by strong 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 is also a telling factor.”
Ms Baxter also revealed the Certificate III in Electrotechnology (Electrician) and Certificate III in Commercial Cookery courses had enjoyed significant increases in enrolments and interest this year, rounding out the top four courses.

“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.”
