Information sessions for students seeking vocational training and careers in Gippsland’s dairy and agriculture sector will be held this month in three regional centres.

Federation Training, in conjunction with GippsDairy, is holding the Information Sessions in Leongatha, Sale and Warragul to inform students, parents and the community about the commencement of vocational training, which was in doubt at the end of 2017 following the withdrawal of previous training provider, GOTAFE.

Students will be offered the training opportunities by Federation Training to gain the skills required for the jobs of the future in Gippsland’s agricultural sector.
Federation Training’s Interim Chief Executive Officer, Mr Grant Radford, is pleased that the training will finally commence after the completion of a comprehensive due diligence process over past months.

“We are very keen to welcome the Gippsland agriculture and dairy students to Federation Training and we are delighted to partner with GippsDairy and Dairy Australia, so we can honour the original commitment to these existing students to enable them to complete their studies in this important industry sector,” Mr Radford said.

“The Information Sessions will provide clarity for employers and trainees. As Gippsland’s TAFE training provider, we look forward to playing a major educational role in the agriculture sector across our region.”

Details of the Information Sessions are as follows:

  • Leongatha Monday 14 May 2018 - rsvp no later than 10 May 2018 11.30am to 1.30pm Federation Training - Leongatha Campus
