Frankston and Mornington Peninsula residents can access tuition-free TAFE courses this year across a range of career areas under the State Government’s Free TAFE for Priority Courses scheme. As the holidays come to a close, people are setting their 2019 goals. Whether you are a school-leaver or considering that long-desired career change, this could be a great starting point.
General manager regional education Jess Cook says: “Enrolments are filling fast and this is a great opportunity for people within our community to study close to home within in-demand career fields. We have extended our offering to include courses in Education Support, Horticulture, Hospitality, Commercial Cookery and more.”
There is a range of Free TAFE for Priority Courses with some places still available for early and mid-2019 intake at Frankston and Mornington Peninsula campuses. These include 30 non-apprenticeship courses and 20 courses that provide pathways to apprenticeships known as pre-apprenticeships. Chisholm is offering 39 of these Free TAFE Courses on-campus and online.
Chisholm CEO Dr Rick Ede says: “It’s clear that Victoria is growing and we need skilled workers to help keep building the state. Chisholm is championing Free TAFE as an initiative that will support Victoria’s growth industries with skilled workers for in-demand jobs, particularly in the southeast of Victoria. Chisholm is proud to offer these free priority courses and play our part in making sure all Victorians can get the training they need for a good job, and help deliver the skills mix needed by industry.”
It is really important that no matter what stage people are at, school-leavers as well as career-changers can access quality, nationally recognised training locally to keep skills and jobs in our vibrant region. For more information or to enrol, visit chisholm.edu.au/freetafe
