New TAFE learning centre progressing
TAFE NSW is progressing on its delivery of Cobar’s new multi-million dollar Connected Learning Centre and multi-trades workshop, which will significantly expand local education and training opportunities.
The concrete slab foundations for both the Connected Learning Centre and multi-trades workshop are now complete, with the steel structural frame and roof of the Connected Learning Centre also now assembled.
The new facilities are scheduled to open to students in early 2022.
Once opened next year, the centre will give students access to more personalised learning experiences, better access to teachers both on and off-site, simulated work environments, and relevant training for jobs of the future.
The new multi-disciplinary trades work-shop is specifically designed to operate alongside the digitally enabled Cobar Connected Learning Centre, to deliver a range of hands-on courses linked to job outcomes, including in in-demand areas such as Manufacturing and Engineering.
Construction company, Renascent, was awarded the contract for construction in January this year, and a number of local sub-contractors are also involved in the construction of the state-of-the-art facilities, including DRM Contracting Services, Cobar Cranes, Martin Rural Contracting, and Cynend.
