TAFEs unite

tafeGIPPSTAFE will work with other TAFE colleges and Federation University Australia to improve tertiary education options in Gippsland.

Minister for Higher Education and Skills Minister responsible for the Teaching Profession Peter Hall made the announcement on Friday.

GippsTAFE will join with the new uni and Chisholm Institute and Advance TAFE to share resources.

Mr Hall said the partnership would offer more employment opportunities in regional Victoria and maximise efficiency for TAFEs in Gippsland.

“I am pleased that each has come to the same conclusion that an alliance involving FedUni, Advance TAFE and GippsTAFE will maximise training opportunities and learning outcomes for the region,” hesaid.

“The Victorian Coalition Government will continue to support the provision of vocational training in Gippsland and work with the local providers to consider how this alliance can best meet the needs of industry and the local community.”

Mr Hall said Gippsland already benefits from partnerships between Chisholm, Advance TAFE and GippsTAFE.

“This was shown with the establishment of the Technology Enabled Learning Centre network and a number of Regional Partnership Facilitation Funded projects. These partnerships will continue, and work to form new relationships with other vocational and higher education providers in the future,” he said.
