TAFE NSW invites community to 2019 Open Day

BE AMBITIOUS: Prospective students will be able to pursue the course to find the job of their dreams at the 2019 TAFE NSW Open Day.

12 September, 2019

As the HSC approaches, school leavers across the state are getting ready to take a break from the books and head to hands-on Open Days at TAFE NSW this Saturday to get a taste of vocational training and education options for next year.

The Minister responsible for Skills and Tertiary Education, Geoff Lee, said the NSW Government fee-free apprenticeships and Smart and Skilled-funded courses means there’s never been a better time to study at TAFE NSW.

“There are more than half a million new jobs in the pipeline right now that require doing, not just knowing. Courses for nine of the ten most in-demand jobs are already being delivered by TAFE NSW,” Mr Lee said.

“With courses and bachelor degrees in areas such as cyber security and drone technology, and information technology, choosing TAFE NSW is an obvious choice for people looking to secure their first job, win a promotion or endeavor on a career change.

“TAFE NSW students are in high demand because of the quality of their education and ability to hit the ground running with the job-ready skills that employers are looking for.”

Minister Lee said visitors to Open Day on 14 September will learn more about how studying one of over 1200 courses at TAFE NSW can turbocharge their career.  

“Open Day will provide prospective students with an invaluable opportunity to explore the innovative range of course options, meet with award winning teachers and explore the practical, hands-on facilities at TAFE NSW,” he said.

A range of family-friendly activities will be on offer from 9am to 1pm this Saturday. For further information visit or join Open Day activities at the following locations:
