TAFE NSW Campbelltown is set to receive a funding injection of $1.2 million from the NSW Government for infrastructure upgrades and digital connectivity improvements.

Welcoming the investment, Member for Campbelltown Greg Warren emphasized the significance of TAFE NSW in bolstering the local economy by providing students with industry-relevant skills.

“When students learn their craft or trade using industry-standard equipment, and high-quality digital technology, they are much more likely to graduate with the kind of job-ready skills that employers are looking for,” Mr Warren said.

“This investment ensures our local TAFE NSW campus is equipped to meet the educational and employment needs of the local community.”

The investment aims to enhance teaching spaces, equipment for hospitality training, and campus facilities such as air conditioning.

This funding is part of a broader $300 million initiative across the state to upgrade over 120 TAFE NSW campuses, reflecting the government’s substantial $2.131 billion investment in TAFE NSW.

Minister for Skills, TAFE and Tertiary Education Steve Whan said, “This continued investment in TAFE NSW facilities will expand learning opportunities in local communities, improve educational outcomes, and support the state’s critical skills needs.”
