A team of Library and Administrative staff from Cessnock, Kurri Kurri and Maitland Campuses of Hunter TAFE participated in a 5km fundraising walk for Friends of Palliative Care on Sunday 15th September.

A great time was had by all involved. The event raised around $19,000 for this worthwhile local charity.

Attention all Trade Students!

Students are reminded that it is essential that you use your full legal name on TAFE enrolment forms.  If you have a preferred name that differs from your birth certificate, put this in the ‘preferred name’ section.

This is particularly important if at the completion of your course you intend to apply for a license (building, plumbing etc) with Fair Trading. All the names on the document you present need to match – otherwise you will have to pay a fee (currently $75) to have your name amended on the TAFE transcripts.

So, before you complete your course get this fixed at the Administration office for free!

For more information about applying for a licence or certificate, visit the NSW Fair Trading website.
