At GippsTAFE, we believe that the TAFE sector offers potential students a huge host of benefits. High quality training, expert staff, industry standard facilities, nationally recognised qualifications and a focus on practical career skills all contribute to a dynamic learning environment designed for student success.
In the Gippsland region, GippsTAFE has partnered a number of other Institutes who share our commitment to the TAFE difference - quality training, higher education opportunities and real employment outcomes. These alliances enable us to provide the local community, business and industry with even better solutions for skills development.
By working together, we can reduce the duplication of services, maximise our resources and capitalise our strengths. This approach results in sharing staff expertise, skills, knowledge, resources, facilities and technological infrastructure, leading to more opportunities for students.
This new partnership between Monash University and GippsTAFE is set to help overcome regional barriers to education, and create more opportunities for more people in Gippsland to study at university.
GippsTAFE and Monash University Alliance
The Memorandum of Understanding, signed in October 2010, establishes new links between TAFE and university study. It will see the introduction of new pathways between TAFE and university, and guaranteed articulation for TAFE graduates wanting to extend their learning at university. With a focus on courses that meet local workforce needs, the MoU will play an important part of meeting government objectives to increase regional participation in education.
