Coffs Harbour Education CHEC

TAFE NSW Coffs Harbour is on the lands of the Gumbaynggirr people. There are two sites that comprise TAFE NSW Coffs Harbour. This one is known as the education campus. The other, also in Coffs Harbour, is a more general TAFE NSW campus with a strong trades focus.

The campus, located between the bustling city of Coffs Harbour and the beachside community of Sawtell, shares a site with the Coffs Harbour Senior College and Southern Cross University. It’s aim is to create an innovative and inviting learning environment for students of all disciplines. The community also benefits from the Coffs Harbour Innovation Centre. This is a regional hub fostering creative and technology-based businesses. It recently also upgraded its on site auditorium/theatre.

The TAFE NSW Coffs Harbour Education campus also has a range of practical skills centres and workshops. There’s a state-of-the-art automotive workshop, hair and beauty salon, commercial kitchen and bakery, child care centre, farming gardens and a nursery. New allied health facilities include specialist dental equipment and a simulated hospital for nursing training. Unique to TAFE NSW Coffs Harbour campus is its furniture design workshop, the only one of its kind on the North Coast.

Student amenities include a multi-level library, computer facilities, on-campus gym, a campus bar, and indoor and outdoor sporting facilities. The popular Osprey Restaurant provides opportunities for TAFE NSW Coffs Harbour students to practice kitchen and service skills acquired through their hospitality courses. It invites the public by invitation only, to experience the students' hospitality and culinary skills while they are formally assessed.
