Hunter TAFE CEO Christine Warrington said the relationship between Hunter TAFE and the University of Newcastle had created plenty of educational pathways for new and continuing students.
“This relationship had widened choices for students, making it easier for them to get all the qualifications they need in this first-class education and training hub on the Central Coast.”
