The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder will be launching its Education and Training Guide today, Friday the 8 November at the Goldfields Arts Centre from 4pm until 6pm.
The Guide has been developed to showcase Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s world-class education and training sector, and showcases all of the primary, secondary, tertiary and vocational education and training offerings currently available in the City, as well as organisations offering jobs and skills support.
The launch will also include a “Teach Meet” for local teachers and trainers, hosted in partnership with Teach for Australia.
City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO John Walker said that the Guide had been developed to promote Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s quality education and training offerings, recognising the significant way education contributes towards liveability and economic growth.
“We know that Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s education and training sector is one of the best in regional Australia,” Mr Walker said.
“Our City is home to award winning Primary and Secondary schools, Central Regional TAFE which offers over 300 courses locally, and the West Australian School of Mines, one of the top two mining universities in the world.
“Clearly, Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s education and training sector has a lot to offer families, students, new residents, and those wanting to upskill or undertake higher education and training close to home”.
Teach for Australia will be hosting a “Teach Meet” for local teachers and trainers to coincide with the launch. More than a dozen educators have volunteered to share their experiences teaching in the Goldfields at this event, discussing what they have found most valuable.
The Teach Meet will take place from 4pm to 5pm, followed by the Education and Training Guide Launch from 5pm until 6pm. Local teachers, trainers, and education advocates are encouraged to register at www.ckb.wa.gov.au/education
Following the Launch, the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Education and Training Guide will be available at the City’s Administration Building, the CBD Customer Service Centre, at the William Grundt Memorial Library, and online at www.ckb.wa.gov.au/education
