TAFE Gippsland will receive more than $4.3 million to modernise and upgrade learning spaces and facilities at its Warragul and Morwell campuses, as part of a funding package announced by the Victorian Government.
Minister for Training and Skills and Higher Education Gayle Tierney today announced every TAFE in Victoria will share in $55 million to carry out essential upgrades to learning facilities and amenities, as well as to re-fit and modernise existing learning spaces to adapt them to deliver more courses.
A massive 965 square metres of space will be transformed into flexible fit-for-purpose facilities at TAFE Gippsland’s Warragul campus as part of a $2.9 million upgrade. The works will enhance existing learning areas into multi-purpose teaching spaces and improve campus safety.
A further $1.4 million will be invested for building and carpark works at TAFE Gippsland’s Morwell Campus. The works will refurbish classrooms, upgrade carparking and improve staff and student amenity and access to the Koori and Horticulture buildings.
All Victorian TAFEs will share in the funding through the TAFE Asset Maintenance Fund, with projects to be delivered in Geelong, Gippsland, Mildura, Warrnambool, Shepparton, Seymour and metropolitan Melbourne.
This investment is on top of an additional $48.8 million available for asset maintenance through the Stronger TAFE fund.
