Calling on industry to partner with TAFE NSW

Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee today launched an Expression of Interest process for industry and universities to partner with TAFE NSW in the design and delivery of its Digital Technology Centre of Excellence at Meadowbank.

The NSW Government is investing $154 million to transform TAFE NSW Meadowbank into the first digital technology-focused campus – and university and industry partnerships will play a key role in aligning the Centre of Excellence to current and future skills needs.

Mr Lee said the TAFE NSW Centres of Excellence are game-changers for education and training in NSW.

“We are very excited to work with partners in this new way. I encourage organisations and universities to think about the skills their workforce of the future will need to compete on a global scale,” he said.

“As the signature training hub for future technologies and digitalisation at TAFE NSW, the new Centre of Excellence will help to address the rapidly growing and evolving digital economy and break down sectoral divides between vocational education, higher education and industry.

“This latest announcement at Meadowbank shows TAFE NSW is leading the way when it comes to partnering with industry to meet the skills needs of the economy and ensure the people of NSW are job-ready.”
