TAFE NSW YES+

TAFE NSW’s Youth Engagement Strategy Plus (YES+) helps students identify potential career pathways through vocational tasters in a wide range of industries, delivered at a local TAFE NSW campus.

The YES+ initiative gets students out of the school setting into TAFE-style learning, usually attending a TAFE NSW campus one day per week over 6-10 weeks.

Initiative activities include:

  • Taster courses in different industries leading to a TAFE NSW Statement in Youth Engagement
  • TAFE NSW support services, including career counselling, mentoring, career advice, and literacy and numeracy support
  • Visits to industry sites and real workplaces (COVID-19 restrictions permitting)
  • Local funding to help with items such as PPE and transport
