Bring a Trade Readiness Course to your school

These industrious people are students from Chifley College Senior Campus who this week were involved in a Bricklaying Trade Readiness Course. These Trade Readiness Courses are funded by the Department of Industry (Training Services NSW) and allocated by the Apprenticeship Engagement Forum to high schools delivering the Mathematics in Trades Pathway. TAFE NSW provides the teachers to run these valuable programs. Bring a TRC to your school … contact the AEF — Andrew.bryson@bigpond.com — for more information.

Do you love growing things?

Do you like getting your hands dirty? Do you like being outdoors? Naturally! Then a school-based NSW Amenity Horticulture traineeship should be perfect for you. Come along to a showcase day at Andreasens Nursery, 1543 Elizabeth Drive, Kemps Creek on Thursday, 28 February, 2019. Your questions will be answered. There will be hands-on workshops — nursery/plant production; green wall construction and irrigation; pathing construction; and a climbing arborist (that’s more of a demonstration). AND … lunch. BUT … you MUST book, you can’t just show up. Contact Suzanne.taylor22@det.nsw.edu.au — do it now.

Cyber security traineeship now a reality

The proposal for a Cyber Security Traineeship gained strong support from industry associations and employers and is now a reality. The new traineeship uses the accredited course 22334VIC Certificate IV in Cyber Security. Details are listed in the Commissioner’s Information Bulletin CIB 675. Essentially those who complete the traineeship become para-professionals in Cyber Security. The traineeship is seen an entry level to ICT with focus on the technical skills trainees will need to protect organisations against malicious cyber activity. The Certificate IV in Cyber Security will have widespread appeal to medium to large employers. Some of the future job roles could include: Cyber Security Support Officer, Security Penetration Tester, Information Systems Security Support Officer, Network Security Support Officer or Website Security Support Officer. In NSW the RTO currently able to deliver the qualification is TAFE NSW. http://ow.ly/GdDT30lEoaR
