School leavers, career-changers and those looking for a competitive edge can view a showcase of training opportunities at South Regional TAFE’s Bunbury Campus during its open day on Saturday.

The free event running from 12pm to 3pm will show what the campus has to offer potential students, provide application information and introduce new courses available next year.

South Regional TAFE managing director Duncan Anderson said the event was an excellent opportunity for prospective students to speak directly with lecturers about the courses they are interested in and view the training facilities.

“Training at TAFE can give you a distinct advantage when applying for a job because our courses provide the most relevant industry skills and knowledge,” Mr Anderson said.

“Our highly-skilled lecturers have worked, or still work, in the industry they are training in and are passionate about training others.”

“Studying at a local campus can also give students the chance to maintain their support network and stay in close contact with family and friends.”

The event would also include a booth to match visitors’ personalities to a dream career and student exhibits, including coffee making demonstrations by barista students and hospitality lecturers.

Campus tours will run throughout the day to give visitors a look inside the state-of-the-art automotive centre, epicure training restaurant or get hands-on with the latest surveying equipment.

Learning areas on display include visual arts, retail, community services, electrical, tourism and more.

The first round of full-time applications for 2018 are now open and will close on December 8.
