TAFE SA and UniSA
Career Information Evening.
The general public from across the region will have the chance to meet representatives from TAFE SA and University of South Australia on Thursday, 15 May from 4.30pm to 7.30pm at Mount Gambier, Main Corner Complex at the ‘Pathways to Your Future’ event. This is an opportunity for prospective students and their parents to discuss and explore local study options, as well as mature age students who wish to upskill or are looking for a career change.
This is the first joint career information event held in by TAFE SA and UniSA, who will be exhibiting various courses including Management, Accounting, Business Studies, Horticulture, Forestry, Hospitality, Cookery, Training and Assessment, Nursing, Aged Care, Disability, Social Work, Education, Children Services and Foundation Studies (UniSA), Foundation Skills (TAFE SA), Metal Fabrication and Hair and Beauty.
TAFE SA Regional Manager Limestone Area, Tania Plunkett, said it will give prospective students the chance to speak to highly experienced and qualified lecturers.
“This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is thinking about changing careers, advancing further in their chosen field of employment or nearing the end of their high school education. ‘Pathways to Your Future’ gives the community the opportunity to come and see what is available at TAFE SA and UniSA at a local level. We want to encourage people to stay in the area to study which contributes to the prosperity of our local area,” said Tania.
UniSA Associate Professor Judy Nagy is looking forward to bringing the event to Mt Gambier to showcase the University’s latest developments.
“We are very excited to expand the number of programs we will be offering once our new building (in Mt Gambier) is completed in 2016 and the high speed internet that is part of the project will mean we can enrich our student learning experiences by connecting to anywhere in the world,” said Judy.
TAFE SA and UniSA have strong connections and many TAFE SA qualifications at Diploma and Advanced Diploma level have articulation agreements that entitle TAFE SA graduates to gain credit in university degrees. This means students may complete their degree in less time and at a lower cost.
