An employer who needs skilled staff has to first train the school leaver or the new graduate to do the job. The collaboration between the CFL and TAFE New South Wales Hunter Institute gives students a third option an internationally recognised technical qualification with clear learning and career pathways to employment and University. It gives employers access to skilled staff. It is our privilege to collaborate with TAFE NSW Hunter Institute and bring these valuable training courses to you.
