In an effort to create more jobs and a stronger workforce for the
future, TAFE NSW will be creating nine Skillspoint headquarters
throughout the state.
"Each location has been strategically determined to support its
own region's economic growth and employment needs," said
Assistant Skills Minister, Adam Marshall.
"So, for example, the SkillsPoints in Coffs Harbour will focus
on tourism while the SkillsPoints in Griffith will focus on
agribusiness," Marshall told the Northern Daily Leader.
The headquarters will be based in Tamworth, Griffith, Queanbeyan,
Dubbo, Coffs Harbour, Ultimo, Parramatta, Newcastle and Mount Druitt.
"With regionally based headquarters and a state-wide focus,
SkillsPoints will be capable of rapidly designing and delivering
training to meet the needs of established and emerging
industries," he said.
