TAFE NSW open day will be held this Saturday, September 14.
While the Nowra and Ulladulla campuses are not taking part, if you are interested in a TAFE course you can head along to the TAFE NSW Wollongong open day.
Locals who attend on Saturday can explore the same courses offered at Shoalhaven campuses.
It is a chance for those about to sit their HSC or school leavers to have a hands-on experience to get a taste of vocational training and education options for next year.
Minister responsible for Skills and Tertiary Education, Geoff Lee, said the NSW Government fee-free apprenticeships and Smart and Skilled funded courses means that 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 10 most in-demand jobs are already being delivered by TAFE NSW," he 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 endeavour 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."
Through TAFE open days you can learn more about how studying one of over 1200 courses at TAFE NSW can turbocharge their career.
"Open days 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 activities will be on offer this Saturday including; an automotive paint and panel demonstration, try our cutting edge virtual welder, lay a brick with Mick, become a star of the screen or film a short scene.
Saturday's open day runs from 9am to 1pm at TAFE NSW Wollongong, Foley Lane, North Wollongong.
