TAFE data shows 44% increase
TAFE NSW enrolment data for 2017 shows thousands of extra students wanted to take advantage of the State’s property boom and become real estate agents with huge growth in the course.
Minister responsible for TAFE NSW Adam Marshall said enrolments in the Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate) had seen a huge 44 per cent increase in 2017.
“The State’s property sector is booming and students are flocking to TAFE NSW because they know they can get the best practical, industry-led and accredited training that will lead to employment in the sector,” Mr Marshall said.
“With a 44 per cent increase in the Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate) across the State there is no doubt budding real estate agents have chosen TAFE NSW as the institution of choice for their training.
“The NSW Government also offers a significant subsidy to eligible students of almost 85 per cent of the total course fee for the Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate) under Smart and Skilled as it is a qualification which plays a key role in growing the State’s economy.
“This means students looking to train in real estate at TAFE NSW not only get the skills they need to get a job but they can do so without accumulating a large debt from expensive tuition fees.
“The performance of TAFE NSW in this huge growth sector is another example of how the NSW Government is working hard to address the skills needs of the State.”
This year also saw strong performance for traditional trade qualifications including Certificates and Diplomas in building and construction, carpentry and plumbing both in metropolitan areas and rural and regional NSW. 
TAFE NSW offers more than 1,200 nationally recognised courses from certificates to degrees. TAFE NSW is currently taking enrolments for Semester One 2018. Visit: www.tafensw.edu.au/TAFENSW/Courses
