The NSW Government recently announced that the Cootamundra electorate has
received a share in the NSW Government’s $10 million investment in state-of-the-art
technology for TAFE NSW classrooms, providing students with the best possible
opportunity to learn.


The Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said this latest investment is part of a
state-wide program delivering technology upgrades to over 1500 learning spaces
across 134 metropolitan, regional and rural TAFE NSW campuses this year.
The Cootamundra electorate has received a $160,000 investment, receiving 155
new devices across the Cootamundra, Narrandera, Temora, Young and Cowra
campuses.


Each new model computer will come equipped with a keyboard, mouse and a large
27-inch monitor with the capability to view several windows at once.
“The NSW Government is investing in new equipment at TAFE NSW campuses
across the state to ensure students have the digital skills they need to gain
employment.”


“The classroom asset refresh program is testament to the NSW Government’s
commitment to TAFE NSW and delivering the pipeline of skilled workers industry
needs.”


“Upgrading technology across our state-wide network of campuses is key to helping
students get jobs, and supporting the NSW economy into the future,” Ms Cooke said.


Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said the investment is a prime
example of how the NSW Government is investing in modern, industry-standard
equipment to support quality educational outcomes.


“The new technology, which is faster and more powerful than before, enables
students to access a wider range of computer applications and allows teachers to
deliver the highest quality education and training,” Mr Lee said.


“The NSW Government is proud to invest in modern learning equipment to deliver
the workforce of the future, and provide students with the digital literacy skills they
need to hit the ground running once they graduate.”
