Sydney, NSW. Sydney TAFE and Western Sydney Institute of TAFE recently partnered with Upskilled to deliver a variety of courses, from Sports to Financial Services and even Agriculture – a new industry for Upskilled.
The partnership will deliver the following qualifications: FNS50615 Diploma of Financial Planning, SIS50712 Diploma of Sport and Recreation Management, AHC40110 Certificate IV in Agriculture, AHC60110 Advanced Diploma of Agriculture and AHC60310 Advanced Diploma of Agribusiness Management.
Agriculture and Agribusiness are some of Australia’s largest industries and certainly ones where skills are in demand. With crops yielding billions of dollars in production value yearly and Agriculture accounting for only 3% of employment in Australia in 2011, it’s easy to see why Agriculture and Agribusiness are two industries currently suffering from a skills shortage.
While it is projected that over 60,000 more Financial Advisers and Managers will be employed in 2019, all these new courses are really targeting either industries of growth or industries with a demand in employment. This makes for a smart choice in today’s employment environment.
Sydney TAFE is one of the largest education and training providers in Australia, having operated for over 100 years. They offer over 600 rewarding and exciting nationally recognised courses and training programs across seven colleges, online and via distance learning. Western Sydney Institute is just as reputable, award winning in fact. In 2014 they were awarded the 2014 NSW Large Training Provider of the Year. OTEN is Western Sydney Institute of TAFE’s online and distance learning center, providing over 200 courses online. Included are the new Agriculture and Agribusinesses courses, bridging the gap for rural and remote students wishing to get ahead without having to suffer the stress of travel.
These new courses are all VET FEE-HELP approved and could also attract other Government funding and/or incentives, increasing access and affordability for a greater number of students undertaking training and education in Finance, Sports Management, Agriculture and Agribusiness.
