Students get a glimpse of TAFE

High school students in the Midwest gathered at Central Regional TAFE’s (CRTAFE) Geraldton campus to learn all about what to expect when studying at TAFE.

The VETDSS (Vocational Education and Training Delivered to Secondary Students) Info Night gives students an idea of their options for studying at TAFE whilst still at school and what a potential future career could be like in the industry of their choice.

Held on Tuesday 18 June, the event included stalls from all training areas of the TAFE where students where able to give various skills a try. Students, parents and guardians also toured the campus facilities and got a glimpse of what they could expect to experience next year.

VETDSS Coordinator Allison Noble said it was great to see so many people attend the event.

“We had over 150 people, making it the biggest turnout we have ever had” Ms Noble said.

“Lecturers and staff were on hand to answer any questions and help students understand how a TAFE qualification can help them achieve the career they want” she said.

Central Regional TAFE Managing Director Bill Swetman said the VETDSS program is particularly successful because it gives students an opportunity to get a head start for the future.

“Vocational Education and Training offers students so many opportunities for both employment and further study, and the VETDSS program allows students to start gaining a qualification and most importantly practical experience, which really gives them a head start in life” Mr Swetman said.

“The program is also highly effective because it allows us as the state training provider to work closely with both the schools and employers to ensure students are gaining the skills needed for their chosen pathway” he said.

The Midwest VETDSS course guide is available via the link below, and students can enrol now for 2020 courses by speaking to their school VET Coordinator or contacting CRTAFE on 1800 672 700 or

CRTAFE is also open for general enrolments for semester two this year, and everyone is encouraged to attend the enrolments days on the 4 and 5 July where lecturers and staff will be on hand to answer questions.
