Coffs Harbour TAFE to grow tourism and hospitality workforce

Published: 2 Aug 2018

A new TAFE NSW facility that works closely with the tourism industry has opened in Coffs Harbour.

The Tourism and Experience Services TAFE NSW SkillsPoint will collaborate with industry to develop training in tourism and hospitality and help address the growing skills needs of these industries.

Minister responsible for TAFE NSW Adam Marshall said by working with industry partners, training will align with industry need.

“Tourism and hospitality are rapidly growing industries and huge contributors to the NSW economy, but we know the key to unlocking their true economic potential is a steady supply of qualified workers with industry relevant skills,” Mr Marshall said.

The tourism and hospitality industries continue to grow rapidly in NSW. The North Coast region attracts 11 million visitors and generates $3.4 billion each year for the local economy.

Coffs Harbour is one of nine SkillsPoints locations across NSW.
