This new breed of tertiary degrees has been developed to provide regional and rural Victorians with more choice when it comes to obtaining an undergraduate degree within their local community.
GOTAFE Commercial Manager for Business and IT, Joanne Craig said that GOTAFE is utilising new delivery methods and enhanced services that enables students to learn in a familiar setting.
“The partnership between Federation University Australia and GOTAFE has been developed to boost higher education in regional Victoria,” Craig said.
“The structure of our courses provides our students with the flexibility and one-on-one attention they deserve; smaller classes and sessions ensure the highest standard of learning is delivered locally yet affordably.”
The Australia Bureau of Statistics has reported that over the past decade nationally, there has been a 10 per cent growth of people aged 25-64 with a higher education qualification. The demand on education institutions has never been greater.
A key determinant of regional economic development is the knowledge and skills with which people contribute to society and the economy.
Despite this significant growth, the availability of skilled workers is a key regional development issue.
With the pending retirement of the baby boomer generation, the development of regional and rural individuals is a critical part of addressing anticipated regional labour shortages.
