Construction Centre of Excellence - Intro

NSW Institute of Applied Technology for Construction (formerly TAFE NSW Construction Centre of Excellence)

TAFE NSW is developing the NSW Institute of Applied Technology for Construction (formerly the TAFE NSW Construction Centre of Excellence) in western Sydney.

The NSW Government is investing $80m in the NSW Institute of Applied Technology for Construction, which will be located at TAFE NSW Nepean – Kingswood.

With state-of-the-art simulated workplace environments and maker spaces, the Institute has been specifically designed to become a signature training hub, equipping the next generation of trades workers the skills fundamental to building the smart cities of the future.

The NSW Institute of Applied Technology for Construction will be a flagship educational centre supporting the pipeline of major infrastructure projects, civil construction works, and residential developments currently in development, as well as future projects that will service western Sydney’s fast-growing population.

Ideally situated near local high schools and the Western Sydney University’s Werrington South campus, the Institute’s modern facilities, expert teachers, and on-site industry engagement, will all help to significantly enhance education and training within the region.

The NSW Institute of Applied Technology for Construction will:

  • be a signature construction training hub aligned to industry
  • enable student and staff engagement with industry partners
  • create an education environment to address skills gaps in the economy
  • foster a network between schools, VET, universities, and industry, to co-design future-focused courses and innovative training models
  • enable seamless study pathways between university and TAFE NSW
  • deliver early exposure to students through programs and exclusive access to the latest technologies
  • enable and encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration, industry engagement, and educational excellence
  • enable upskilling and reskilling of workers throughout their careers
  • improve accessibility through digitally-enabled facilities, providing virtual classes for remote and regional NSW communities.
