New year, new dream job

“Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”, said Confucius

As New South Wales opens up and pre-pandemic aspirations may no longer strike a chord, now is an opportune time to upskill at TAFE or take the leap into a career change.

If all of the downtime over the past two years honed an idea for a small business, there are plenty of online courses, such as the Certificate III in Entrepreneurship and New Business or the Certificate III in Business.

Other online courses include Certificate III in Pathways to Further Study, Certificate III in Accounts Administration, Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping and the Advanced Diploma of Hospitality Management.

The most popular courses at Broken Hill TAFE are in childcare, aged care and engineering, according to a TAFE NSW spokeswoman.


However, TAFE NSW offers 35 courses in areas with in-demand skills, such as carpentry, Information Technology (IT), mental health support, holiday parks and resorts, hospitality, business and administration.

Broken Hill TAFE also has courses in the music industry, real estate, events, tourism, travel, retail, food safety, Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) and Responsible Service of Gambling (RSG).

Make a career move by studying project management, leadership and management or Work, Health and Safety (WHS).

There are also courses in financial counselling, library services, youth work, community pharmacy, disability and education support.

Flexible learning options include full-time and part-time study, as well as combinations of face-to-face, online and virtual classroom learning, depending on the chosen course. \
