COMMUNITY TRAINING BOOST FOR
More people will have access to education and training, with Tamworth Community College and Community College Northern Inland among 35 community providers across the State set to benefit from the NSW Government’s $17.8 million investment in community training.
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the NSW Adult Community Education (ACE) program helps thousands of disadvantaged, and regional and remote learners get access to formal education and training.
“The NSW Government is providing people with choice and access to the best training options available regardless of where they live.
“Adult and Community Education providers are vital in helping students that may need additional support, including those in regional and remote communities.
“Tamworth Community College and Community College Northern Inland are well-connected in the community, providing quality training for disadvantaged people to support their transition into further training and jobs, and access to recognised training in regional and remote communities.
“NSW ACE courses also offer other educational, social and civic engagement benefits aimed at removing disadvantage and improving opportunity.
Tamworth Community College Executive Officer Michelle Simpson said “Community Colleges have evolved over recent years and the ACE funding provided by the NSW Government enables us to give students access to affordable, quality nationally accredited training in a supportive learning environment.
“This targeted program gives eligible rural and regional participants the skills they need to get a job or progress to further training with life-changing results”
