Michael Johnsen MP, Member for Upper Hunter today officially opened the multi-million dollar Connected Learning Centre (CLC) in Singleton, which will give Singleton and regional residents access to a wider range of training to help them get the job they need thanks to the new CLC.
Mr Johnsen said the range of courses available to students throughout the region would be greatly increased thanks to the new state-of-the-art facility.
“The Nationals in Government are investing in the future of residents in our local rural and regional communities by providing greater access to training close to home.
“The new centre will complement the existing campus by providing locals with access to almost double the amount of courses already on offer.
“New courses available for the first time include training in Customer Service, Leadership and Management and Tourism, just to name a few.
“This facility is a game-changer for residents as it means they no longer have to travel to get the training they need to become job-ready – they can do it right here in the region.”
Mr Johnsen said the new centre is part of the NSW Nationals commitment to expand the footprint of TAFE.
“The Nationals in Government are ensuring our regional communities have better access to education and training by delivering more TAFE campuses across the state.
“I am thrilled to open this new digitally powered facility that uses the latest technologies to help students get qualified,” Mr Johnsen concluded.
