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.

If you’re looking to enter the workforce armed with invaluable experience and practical skills, check out the courses available at TAFE NSW Maclean.

Student life

    • 💦Here in the Clarence Valley we are lucky to have some of the best beaches and waterways in the world. However, many new migrants to Australia are unaware of the dangers they potentially face. The size and strength of our surf, treacherous rips and gutters and dangerous marine creatures can pose significant risks for inexperienced beachgoers. TAFE NSW is proud to team up with Clarence Valley Council and Surf Life Saving NSW to run a 1 day Beach Safety Awareness course ⛱ at Main Beach, Yamba on Wednesday 20th Feb from 9am for our Adult Migrant English (AMEP) students. This course aims to provide students with the skills to assess beach conditions, swim where it is safe and understand the dangers associated with swimming and living near the ocean. So everyone can safely enjoy our fantastic beaches. The course is fully funded by Clarence Valley Council.
