About TAFE NSW Macksville

TAFE NSW Macksville has a relaxed, friendly and social atmosphere. Wi Fi access makes our Tuscan gardens a popular place to study, while a wood fired pizza oven, café and music playing through the grounds during class breaks adds to the casual vibe.

We specialise in providing vocationally oriented entry-level education and training across the study areas of business, community services and information technology. The campus also features a sustainable herb and vegetable garden for students and the community to enjoy.

Macksville lies on the banks of the Nambucca River on the homelands of the Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal people, surrounded by fertile lands producing bananas, crops, beef and dairy products.

TAFE NSW Macksville have delivered a pilot MySkills Employability Skills Year 9 Program to Macksville High School 13, 14, 15 February and Nambucca Heads High School 20, 21, 22 February 2019 This program, aimed at improving employment outcomes for youth in the Nambucca Valley, was developed in partnership with the Department of Premier and Cabinet. Industry representatives from the Nambucca Valley to Ballina came together with Community Services organisations to share their skills and knowledge, and to mentor the students to help them carry out experiential activities based on their specific industry area. Students learnt about the importance of Employability Skills and the specific or transferable skills and knowledge required of them to gain employment in the future. TAFE NSW Macksville want to say a HUGE thank you to the industry representatives, community services organisations and TAFENSW students from Macksville TAFE who generously gave their time to help positively change employment outcomes for youth in the Nambucca Valley.
