As the economy begins to show signs of promise, South Regional TAFE is eager to strengthen and improve relationships with industry and provide a strong link for its students. 

South Regional TAFE managing director Duncan Anderson said the organisation had performed well in 2017 and hopes were high for 2018.

“This year I’ve seen the most positive feedback from industry since I’ve been in this role,” he said.

“The South West has performed well, particularly from a student numbers perspective and so even in the broader economic conditions the South West has done a good job – it was a good year.”

In a bid to provide as much information about available options, South Regional TAFE will be launching an online platform to increase accessibility in the middle of 2018. 

“The whole process can be quite daunting, particularly if you’re coming in and you don’t know what you want to do,” Mr Anderson said. 

“It’s about providing the right information to the right person, to allow them to make a better decision.”

“We always hope that numbers increase and I would love to see more enrolments in apprenticeships and traineeships.

“I think the South West is a very exciting place to be – TAFE has always been here and I think it will always be part of the community.”
