Gippslanders enthusiastic about studying locally

Warragul Open Evening

Queen Street was abuzz with red and black recently when local TAFE provider, GippsTAFE, opened their doors to the public, sharing their enthusiasm for education with the Warragul community. “GippsTAFE is committed to supporting the continued growth of our communities by developing education solutions tailored to the needs of the region,” said GippsTAFE Warragul Campus Manager, Pip Griffiths.

“It is important that we offer the right courses, flexible study options and support services to assist local people remain in the region for both study and employment.”

The recent Warragul Campus Information Evening was a “roaring success” with over 150 local people taking up the opportunity to find out more about TAFE training and the programs on offer locally in 2012.

“We were thrilled to see so many members of the community walking through our doors to enquire about courses for 2012. The Warragul Campus’ Annual Information Evening gains more and more momentum each year, and the staff thoroughly enjoy showing the community what we have to offer,” Student Engagement Officer, Jenna Langley, told the Gazette.

Staff gave up their time to provide information on over 65 study areas offered by the Institute. Animal Studies, Aged Care, Nursing and Hospitality were among the most popular course offerings for those enquiring about study at the Warragul Campus.

For those looking to enrol in study for 2012 the campus will be holding an Enrolment Day on Thursday the 8th December from 9am – 6pm with staff on hand to assist with the enrolment process.
