New TAFE programs
Thursday, 28 January 2010
Wide Bay Institute of TAFE has launched a new program of short courses at the Gympie campus for students who want to top up their job skills or improve their quality of life.
The Short Program Guide provides alternatives for students who are not attracted to full-time diploma or certificate study and are more interested in improving their employment prospects or satisfying leisure pursuits.
The training units begin in Semester One and cover an extensive range of skill areas including the arts, business, community services, construction, horticulture, hospitality and tourism and security.
The Gympie campus is offering 33 short courses that include job skills like project management, palliative care or bar attendant as well as life interests like ceramics, computer skills or clay sculpturing.
The courses are for workers improving their on-the-job skills or thinking about a new career, adding that some units will be available externally which means students anywhere in the state can enrol.
Starting dates for the units vary, the earliest being February 8.
The Guide is available at all campuses, the website, or the Wide Bay Institute of TAFE Customer Care Centre on 1300 656 188.
