About TAFE NSW Maclean

TAFE NSW Maclean offers a range of training opportunities for all ages. Situated next to Maclean High School, our TAFE-school program is popular with many Year 11 and 12 students who study HSC subjects at our campus.

The campus prides itself on cultural innovation, diversity and acceptance, featuring Aboriginal Language courses, strong connections with nearby Aboriginal communities such as through the North Coast Computer Project, and programs for non-English speaking students. We are known for our practical maritime program and our promotion of sustainability, with a student garden, worm farm and composting activities.

Built on the banks of the Clarence River, Maclean is known as the ‘Scottish Town of Australia’. The town is a major fishing village and the centre of the sugar growing district, and is located upon the traditional lands of the Yaegl Aboriginal people.
