Business course again Quirindi TAFE NSW’s most popular
Interest in TAFE NSW’s Certificate III in Business Administration remained strong in 2017, with Deputy Regional General Manager Adam Bennett today revealing it was the most popular course offered in Quirindi for the second successive year.
The Certificate III in Business Administration course was most popular, with Certificate II in Information, Digital Media and Technology next best. Mr Bennett said the big change from 2016 was the popularity of the Certificate III in Retail course.
“The Certificate III in Business Administration not only experienced a significant spike in interest and enrolments in Quirindi, this was reflected right across western NSW,” Mr Bennett said.
“The Certificate II in Information, Digital Media and Technology course, like all TAFE NSW locations in western NSW, is always very popular but the big mover was the Certificate III in Retail. It was not in the top eight courses in terms of enrolments in 2016, but was the third most popular course in 2017.
“This popularity is driven by increasing industry demand, and because our students enjoy learning from industry experts. The fact that employers trust our training, which can lead to exciting, real-life employment prospects in areas such as administration is also a telling factor.”

“With so many exciting options, and with research revealing that TAFE NSW graduates have a higher median income and employment rate than university graduates, there’s never been a better time to consider TAFE.”
