TAFE NSW has announced that it will be installing contemporary digitally enabled virtual teaching and learning spaces at campuses in Yass, Goulburn, and Moss Vale.
Member for Goulburn, Wendy Tuckerman said this is a major win for the local community. “This investment forms part of a $20 million initiative to build 200 high-tech, modern learning spaces to support virtual learning across TAFE NSW campuses by May 2022,” Mrs Tuckerman said, adding that the initiative will expand and enhance access to training, allowing more students to live and learn in their own communities.
The investment will be used to integrate physical, digital, and virtual learning environments across New South Wales. TAFE NSW campuses at Yass, Goulburn, and Moss Vale will be fitted with four state-of-the art digitally enabled learning spaces, designed to link local students with a state-wide network of industry qualified TAFE NSW teachers.
As part of the initiative, several specialist facilities across NSW will be upgraded, including workshops, kitchens, and laboratories, which will be fitted with technology and equipment to enable live practical demonstrations conducted to industry-standard in fully equipped teaching facilities.
Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said TAFE NSW is evolving to meet the changing learning needs of student and local communities, adding that it also allows students to build skills highly valued by employers, such as digital literacy, remote working, problem-solving, and resilience.
Construction of 200 connected facilities will commence in coming months.
