TAFE NSW nursing and healthcare students across the State are rolling up their sleeves working on the COVID-19 vaccination frontlines.

Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said TAFE NSW was training a pipeline of skilled workers who were supporting vaccination efforts in GP clinics, pharmacies, and healthcare centres around the State.

“TAFE NSW delivers more than 1,000 new nursing and healthcare graduates annually into our health system and we have more than 250 students currently on work placement around the state and ready to help,” Mr Lee said.

TAFE’s Narrendera campus is also currently being used as a vaccination clinic for the Aboriginal community.

TAFE NSW Managing Director Steffen Faurby said he was proud to see TAFE students using their clinical training to help the communities in which they live and work.

“Our students are trained to be job-ready when they graduate from TAFE NSW and there is no better time for them to put that real-world training to use than now,” Mr Faurby said.

“Our TAFE NSW students are providing vital additional support to our healthcare system at a critical time and gaining invaluable first-hand experience of the pressures and realities of working in our healthcare industry.”
