About our Wauchope campus

Wauchope TAFE Campus gives students the opportunity to extend their skills and creativity while making a difference in the local community. We have a strong and proud history of contributing to local groups with sculpture, murals and art exhibitions as well as building, horticulture and landscaping projects.

Wauchope TAFE Campus is home to a state-of-the-art carpentry and joinery facility. The campus features a learner support area, Wi Fi access and student amenities such as a BBQ area for student events and functions.  

Wauchope TAFE Campus, in the Birpai Aboriginal nation, is located in the middle of the town which sits on the banks of the Hastings River. Wauchope is a gateway to national parks and state forests and a centre for the local dairy and beef cattle industries.

  • "there is immense pressure on students to obtain a Bachelor degree, often in cases where a TAFE qualification or on-the-job training would suffice." Interesting story from The Project on university degrees and the potential benefits of TAFE. http://www.mamamia.com.au/the-graduate-glut-only-69-percent-of-us-couldnt/

  • A big thanks to the Wauchope Gazette for this incredibly inspiring story about our student John. After a car crash in 2006 left him a quadriplegic, John refused to give up his active lifestyle. “What I’ve achieved in my 43 years [pre-accident] was quite amazing. And still, what I’m achieving now, I think it’s pretty amazing.” Read more about John's journey below. http://www.wauchopegazette.com.au/story/4040373/living-without-barriers/
