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.

    • RUOK? Day at Maclean TAFE - Thursday 13 September 2018 Our little message for the day was - Simple Acts of Kindness can go a long way in putting a smile on someone’s face – we gave our students a flower and a Positive Affirmation followed by some fun games with each class to bring a smile to their faces as a reminder of how easy it can be to support and reach out to those around us and close to us in times of need or otherwise.

  • Dress As A Farmer Day at Maclean TAFE We all came together this morning to support our Aussie Farmers and Farming Communities in need and also brought a little fun to our Friday by dressing for the occasion, playing some fine country tunes and raising some funds for those suffering the effects of extreme drought. We raised a total of $113.45 – not a bad effort for our little Maclean TAFE Community, a huge thanks to all that were involved!
