$2.25 MILLION FACILITY OPENED IN MOORA The new Moora Campus of the C Y O’Connor College of TAFE was officially opened today at Moora.

The Commonwealth Minister for Education, Training and Youth Affairs, Dr David Kemp, was represented by Wilson Tuckey, the Federal Member for O’Connor.

The Campus is co-located with Central Midlands Senior High School, enabling them to use each other’s resources and facilitating a smooth transition of youth from school into the workforce.

The facilities include an administration building, art and industrial skills facilities and computer serviced teaching spaces.

Courses are offered which are valued for their contribution to local industry. Some of these are business and computing skills for farm management, trade skills, particularly in metal fabrication and automotive trades and visual arts and land management.

Mr Tuckey said that: "The focus of this new centre will be to provide students with access to high quality vocational education and training.

"The new facility will strengthen local industry and target disadvantaged groups seeking employment or retraining. The courses on offer provide training of particular relevance to people in the wheat belt of WA."

The Commonwealth Government provided $2.25 Million for this project through the Australian National Training Authority (ANTA) Infrastructure Program.

"This project demonstrates the Federal Government’s commitment to working with the State and Territory Governments, industry and communities to equip Australians of all ages with the skills necessary for participation in the labour market, and to keep our industries vibrant and competitive in the global economy," Mr Tuckey said.
