TAFE NSW Cessnock acknowledges the Darkinjung and Wonnarua people as the traditional custodians of the stunning landscapes where our campus resides. Once renowned for its coal mining heritage, Cessnock has transformed into a getaway to the picturesque Hunter Valley wine region. Established in 1956, TAFE NSW Cessnock has been a cornerstone of education in the local community for over 60 years. Conveniently situated a short walk from Cessnock's CBD, our TAFE NSW Cessnock campus offers easy access and a lively atmosphere.

We proudly host the Australian Postie Bike Grand Prix. This free, family-friendly event features iconic postman bike street-racing in the heart of the city, providing fun for all. Hosting this event is just one way that TAFE NSW supports the Hunter Region community.

At TAFE NSW Cessnock, you can explore a diverse range of courses. Some options include Aboriginal languages, administration, business, real estate, early childhood education, and much more.
