The NSW Government is investing in industry collaboration with VET

September 28, 2021

The NSW Government has announced they are investing $1 million to fund training for industry experts to pursue a career change as a TAFE NSW teacher. This investment will support 200 industry professionals in NSW to upskill, gaining a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE) with guaranteed employment at TAFE NSW. High-demand industries are being targeted, including engineering, plumbing, carpentry, electrotechnology, nursing, early childhood education and aged care.

The VET sector has been continuously trying to improve and nurture industry engagement to produce the best outcomes for learners and employers, including enhancing industry engagement being a key reform measure in the National Skills Reform. The cost of upgrading to the Certificate IV in TAE is a barrier for many industry experts to become VET practitioners, which this scholarship aims to solve.

Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said the scholarships would give those that have years of experience in their field the opportunity to grow the industries they love by training the next generation.

This scholarship will allow these industry experts to pass on their knowledge, expertise, and professional networks with TAFE NSW learners, which are a vital connection to jobs.
