A TAFE NSW diploma course being offered for the first time in Corowa
will better enable the community to “grow its own” leaders of
tomorrow, according to the town’s mayor.
The Diploma of Leadership and Management is enrolling now for
semester one at TAFE NSW Corowa’s new, state-of-the-art Connected
Learning Centre (CLC).
The diploma covers a broad range of subject areas, including
leadership behaviour, communication at work, innovation in the
workplace, diversity, risk, and work, health and safety.
Federation Council Mayor Pat Bourke said the new course was a
potential game-changer and would help the region better train and
retain its best and brightest.
“Anything that can help grow the capacity of our future community
leaders is a positive thing and I commend TAFE NSW for introducing
this course in Corowa,” Cr Bourke said.
“We have so many talented and ambitious young people in the
Federation Region and this will help many of them take the next steps
in their career.”
The course will be delivered by TAFE NSW teacher and businesswoman
Shirley Virtue, who still manages her family business and has an
extensive project management and marketing background, including as a
former coordinator of the Deni Ute Muster.
TAFE NSW Head Teacher of Leadership and Management Peter Charker said
the landmark diploma course was suitable for people employed across a
range of different industries.
“The TAFE NSW Diploma of Leadership and Management applies across
different industry sectors and allows students to take what they learn
and apply it in the own workplace,” Mr Charker said. “It’s suitable
for those currently in work who are in a supervisory role and want to
more effectively lead their teams.
“It’s essential regional people are given the opportunity to advance
their careers in their local community and that’s what this course,
and the Connected Learning Centre, offers the Deniliquin community.”
The Diploma of Leadership and Management can also be studied online,
when and where it suits students, via TAFE Digital.
