Education and training in Bega is set to receive an unprecedented boost with a range of in-demand courses set to be available in the region for the first time through the new multi-million dollar TAFE NSW Connected Learning Centre (CLC).

Member for Bega Andrew Constance said the new digitally-enabled CLC in Bega is now taking enrolments for 2019.

“The multi-million dollar Bega CLC has introduced a number of in-demand courses which will be available to local students, with many more to come in the future,” Mr Constance said.

“I’m pleased to announce that courses such as the Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping, Certificate IV in Engineering, Certificate IV in Agriculture, Statement of Attainment in Drone Essentials and Certificate IV in Youth Work are just a few that will be available to students across the Bega Valley.

“This investment will transform education delivery in Bega and demonstrates the NSW Government’s commitment to regional NSW.”

CLCs are one of the key initiatives of the NSW Government’s One TAFE reforms which will enable TAFE NSW to deliver modern, flexible and industry relevant training across regional NSW.

CLCs offer students access to the latest learning technologies such as simulation and virtual reality, expert teachers both on and off-site and personalised support services.

The Bega CLC will deliver blended, facilitated and online learning – backed up by Mobile Training Units which will provide the practical training TAFE NSW is known for.

Semester 1 2019 courses are now open for enrolment or enquiries and I would encourage you to get online at and see what the new CLC has to offer,” Mr Constance said.
