Rural students will now have better access to TAFE courses thanks to a new program being offered in the North East.
The Rural Access Project from Wodonga TAFE aims to deliver a range of courses in customer service, business, retail, and hospitality, alongside a nationally recognised qualification in tourism, to participants from some of the most remote towns in the Towong, Indigo, and Alpine Shires.
The course delivery is supported by neighbourhood centres with students able to access the internet and study support through the centres in Tallangatta, Corryong, Myrtleford, Chiltern, and Mount Beauty.
Wodonga TAFE education and vocational skills manger Janelle Cretney said this is an exciting initiative for her team to be involved in.

"This project aims to open up opportunities for students to engage in training, without the need to travel great distances to attend classes on campus every day," she said.
"We are very proud to be able to work with our community partners to remove more of the barriers that people in our regional communities face when trying to access further study options."
The first intake in Certificate III in Tourism will commence in April 2021.
