New South Wales Government has today opened a new TAFE NSW facility in Dubbo to advance training delivery in e-commerce and Supply Chain logistics.

Minister responsible for TAFE NSW Adam Marshall today joined the Member for Dubbo Troy Grant to unveil the new specialist facility called a SkillsPoint. Minister Marshall said the facility would work directly with industry to ensure TAFE NSW students receive the training and skills they need to get a job and meet the needs of employers across New South Wales.

“This new facility will work closely with industry to design and develop courses for TAFE students across the State, ensuring the skills they develop are relevant and set them apart for employment in high-growth industries such as e-commerce and supply chain logistics.” Minister Marshall said.

“Aligning skills training with the needs of industry will ensure our TAFE students are job-ready and able to launch or advance their career in diverse areas ranging from aviation, online business and floristry to vehicle service and repair.”

“New South Wales Government’s modernisation of TAFE NSW is all about initiatives like this, which will improve TAFE NSW’s connection with industry, improve education outcomes for students and enable TAFE NSW to do the heavy lifting in terms of training the State’s future workers.”

Minister Grant said Dubbo was an obvious choice to house the facility.

“Dubbo sees more than 10 Million tonnes of freight moved through the Central West and Orana by road and rail each year, and sustains 2,900 transport, postal and warehousing related businesses across Western New South Wales.” Minister Grant said.

“Dubbo-based SkillsPoint will leverage local expertise and work closely with industry to develop cutting edge TAFE courses for the entire State.”

“SkillsPoint will also create 14 new jobs right here in Dubbo, making it an extra win for the region.” Minister Grant said.

Dubbo is home to one of nine SkillsPoints being rolled out across New South Wales.
