SOD TURNED ON YAMBA TAFE FACILITY

Vocational training will be much easier to access in Yamba by the end of this year.

Today, the Minister for TAFE joined local member Chris Gulaptis and community representatives, to turn the sod on the new Connected Learning Centre.

“Around a third of the students at the McLean Campus actually come from Yamba and there’s limited public transport opportunities so this is a great step forward. To have for the very first time a permanent TAFE tertiary education presence right here in Yamba.”

When the doors open to the $5.8-million facility, 55 courses will be on offer.

It’s expected to be a gamechanger for regional students and businesses.

“Ensuring that everyone that lives in the Yamba can access the training they need to get a job in their local community without the need to travel.”
