  • An inspirational International Womens Day talk from TAFE to Uni nursing pathway student and current UoN lecturer, Gunilla Haydon. Our favourite quote? "Education is empowering. It teaches you how to question things, which helps us all to grow".

  • On Wednesday 16 March, at 4pm the University of Newcastle will be screening the documentary, The Hunting Ground (58min) in room DG.27. After the screening there will be a panel consisting of a Sexual Assault Counsellor, Police Officer, Student Counsellor, Health Promotion Officer available for questions and information. This is an excellent opportunity for TAFE students to consider the issues associated with sexual assault and hear from local services about this important issue. The video does contain the stories of women that have been sexually assaulted so students and staff will need to consider what is appropriate for them.
