TAFE signs MoU with Peninsula Village
TAFE on the Central Coast has developed strong relationships with industry, business and the community and continues to play a major role in the economic and social development of the region.
A key focus for TAFE in the region is the provision of education and training in the areas of health and aged care. This commitment was recently formalised by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between TAFE and Peninsula Village aged care facility. The MOU will allow for the future development of joint programs in health and aged care.
Each year Peninsula Village takes on school based trainees and mentors these individuals, with the assistance of TAFE, through a school based traineeship in either nursing, allied health or hospitality. Commenting on this partnership Phil Cox, Director of TAFE NSW Hunter Institute, said, “It has been very successful, producing excellent outcomes for both students and the facility. TAFE is focused on working with Peninsula Village to provide the Central Coast with a centre of excellence in aged care education. With a proven track record in connecting individuals with industry the connection between TAFE and Peninsula Village will further assist in linking students with Central Coast employment opportunities.”
TAFE also works closely with Brisbane Water Secondary College’s Nursing and Health Program. At the end of last year the first group of high school students graduated from the joint program.
