COMMUNITY engagement is going to be at the top of the agenda for Gunnedah TAFE’s newest team member.
Ashleigh Foster arrived at the Gunnedah campus in May this year, to tackle the role TAFE services co-ordinator.
The new position will see Ms Foster focus on enhancing the learning and training opportunities in Gunnedah, as well as working alongside local trades.
“I was ready for an exciting new challenge and engaging directly with the community particularly appealed to me,” Ms Foster said.
“I am very much looking forward to working with the Gunnedah community to ensure that TAFE NSW delivers education and training opportunities best suited to them.
“I feel privileged to be appointed to this position in such a wonderful town.”

Ms Foster’s appointment comes off the back of the campus offering students a variety of new courses for semester two this year.
“New courses available for semester two include a Statement of Attainment in Excavator and Dozer Operations and a Statement of Attainment in Introduction to Hairdressing, among many others,” she said.
“It brings me joy seeing new students coming in to enrol and it is rewarding to see the new students studying and interacting in the TAFE NSW facilities.
“It is a really exciting time for Gunnedah as we continue to consult with the community and significantly increase our number of course offerings available in the region to cater for growing demand.”
