The TAFE NSW campus in the St George area is set to benefit from its share of a $100 million state-wide investment in TAFE NSW facilities and equipment.
Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education, Geoff Lee, recently announced that more than 140 campuses across the state will receive funding for plant and teaching equipment upgrades, and programmed maintenance.
“The NSW Government has already committed $160 million to reskill 100,000 people as part of its Skilling for Recovery initiative. Now we are investing a further $100 million to provide state of the art training facilities for the people of NSW,” Minister Lee said.
Member for Oatley, Mark Coure, welcomed the announcement.
“I am excited to see the investment the NSW Government is making to maintain and upgrade public training facilities in the St George community,” Mr Coure said.
At TAFE NSW St George, President Avenue and on Montgomery Street, the investment will focus on campus maintenance programs including minor construction, electrical, fire safety and plumbing.
Funding will also be allocated for a new electric hospital bed at the President Avenue campus.
“Investment in training is critical to the success of our state’s economy. The key to getting a great job is having access to the best possible training and facilities,” Mr Coure said.
