TasTAFE investing in campus and facility upgrades

Tasmania's TasTAFE has been delivered a significant number of campus and facility upgrades according to the organisation's (2019–20) annual report tabled in Parliament last week.

The upgrades aim to ensure students have the job-ready skills required by industry now and in the future as the state commences recovery from the impact of COVID-19.

Among the initiatives are new ICT labs at Launceston's Alanvale campus — as part of a $4 million overall in-campus upgrade — along with new kitchens for hospitality training and redevelopment of Hobart's Clarence campus to provide real-world equipment for healthcare training.

TasTAFE received Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) registration for a period of seven years in July 2019, the maximum term available and an indication of the quality of its training and assessment programs. The organisation said the planned upgrades and level of infrastructure investment signals a commitment to delivering the skilled workers needed to support the state's future economic growth.
