The ongoing partnership between Mid Coast Connect and Wauchope TAFE is continuing to provide local students with a non-traditional pathway to education, employment and training. The Certificate II in Skills for Work and Training course is delivered over 14-weeks with students receiving training in the Information Technology, Construction and Automotive industries. The students, supported by Wauchope High School and Mid Coast Connect, also receive additional learning from the
Foundation Skills Training Package as part of the School Leaver Support Program.
The School Leaver Support program is a career planning and work readiness program designed to support young people who are not currently studying or working to help them to enter education, training and employment. Mid Coast Connect delivers the program through the Regional VET Pathways initiative, funded by the NSW Department of Industry, Skills and Regional Development.
