School leavers, career changers or anyone looking to gain new skills will have the opportunity to explore South Regional TAFE at the annual open day this Saturday.

At the open day lecturers and training staff will be on hand to speak to students about courses available in 2020 and also short courses they can get started in this year.

South Regional TAFE managing director Duncan Anderson said the open day was a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in training at TAFE to meet lecturers, see the facilities and have their questions answered.

“Our lecturers have the right skills and industry experience to provide quality training.” Mr Anderson said.

“Courses are developed with job outcomes in mind which gives our graduates a competitive edge.”

Nail technology student Skye Frawley, 17, said the course was very hands on.

“We do all kind of nail things including acrylics and it’s good because you can really pick and choose what you want to do,” Skye said.

“It is a lot of fun and you get to be more creative than what you think, but it is also good because there are rules and guidelines you have to follow.

“I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is a bit creative and wants to try something new.”

Cert III nail technology lecturer Jacqueline Watt said the course was great for anyone with a creative flare.

“In this course there is a lot of freedom to play, express and create, so come on in and enrol.”

The Open Day is a free event and will run from 10am to 1pm.
