Its full steam ahead with the planning of the 70th Australian National Field Days (ANFD), is supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry as part of its Support Regional Trade Events Program and proudly sponsored by Cabonne Council.
Today Feature Exhibit Chairman Mr Chris Solomon announced that the Feature Exhibit for the 2023 event would be TAFE NSW. He is excited that TAFE NSW has come on board to be the centre piece of the exhibition.
“We are focused on the role of agriculture and its associated industries to highlight the importance of a vibrant primary industries sector to Australia, its economy and its well-being. Together, showcasing the strength, vitality, and diversity of our local primary industries. The TAFE NSW will have an extended display of all their courses available along with Head Teachers on site to discuss options and guidance.” Mr Solomon said.
The Australian National Field Days is very proud to be in partnership with TAFE NSW in the presentation of the Feature Exhibit. As one of the leading providers of education and training in Australia, TAFE NSW has industry qualified and experienced teachers bringing up-to-date, real-world skills directly to the classroom. Planning is well under way and the 2023 Feature Exhibit promises to be both truly spectacular and informative. The hands-on demonstration will include virtual driving and welding, chainsaw demonstrations, Horticulture and Nursery, Shearing Display and Education.
TAFE NSW Executive Director for Education & Skills, Adam Bennett, said TAFE NSW is thrilled to be this year’s Feature Exhibitor at the Australian National Field Days.
“We are very excited to be named as the Feature Exhibitor at this year’s event and look forward to the opportunity to showcase the wide variety of TAFE NSW courses on offer,” Mr Bennett said.
“Agriculture is the second largest employment industry in the Central West, with jobs increasing by 5,600 in the last five years alone.
“TAFE NSW offers a variety of agriculture courses for those looking to find a job, change careers or start a business in the sector. We also offer short courses that cater to land holders who don’t have a background in agriculture but wish to upskill to better manage and maintain their properties.
“We know that people of all ages and backgrounds walk through the ANFD gates each year, that’s why our exhibit goes beyond what we can deliver in the agriculture space. Visitors will experience interactive and engaging displays across all industries, including hair and beauty, visual arts and photography, automotive and construction trades, engineering, early childhood education, health and community services, and hospitality, to name a few.
“The Central West is home to an array of employment industries, and we look forward to showing visitors how TAFE NSW can help them gain the skills they need for the job they want.”
The Australian National Field Days will be held at the Borenore site from Thursday October 26 to Saturday 28 October 2022. ENDS
