    • #Ballina local and Certificate II in Animal Studies graduate, Lindsey Johnston, was recently awarded for her outstanding results and approach to her studies at the Lismore TAFE Awards of Excellence. “When I was a little girl, I think it was in first grade, we had to do writing exercise about what we would like to be when we grow up, I said a vet – I have always wanted to be a vet and I love that I can work towards that at TAFE” “Last year I enrolled in the Certificate II in Animal Studies at TAFE NSW Lismore and I have loved every minute of it. It has been absolutely amazing and honestly the best schooling experience of my life" Well done Lindsey, you are well on your way to fulfilling your dreams and we have no doubt you will make a fabulously caring vet someday.

  • Last week at the Lismore Workers Club, Kerrie Bowtell, Leader of Community and Business Engagement with TAFE NSW, praised the 2016 Excellence Award winners. "Much is being made about jobs of the future and how different they will be," she said. "While this is true, the universal truth about how careers unfold is that one stepping stone leads to another, a door opens here, which leads to a door opening there." Congratulations to all of our graduating students from 2016! Via The Northern Star

  • Ballina TAFE student Teliesha White has overcome more than her fair share of hurdles. Teliesha struggled to learn to read and write but she sought help with literacy and numeracy and is now blossoming with new skills. She wants to be a role model to other students who are struggling in school. "Don't be afraid to put your hand up and ask for help...My reading and writing may not be 100% better, but I'm improving and and I've now completed a Certificate I in Business." If you, or someone you know struggles with reading and writing give us a call to discuss our Foundation Skills courses 1300 628 233
