According to the latest TAFE NSW research, ‘motor mechanic’ is the occupation expected to experience the largest employment growth in the NSW Automotive Trades and Services industry over the three years to 2021.

TAFE NSW Glendale students, can now get their hands even dirtier thanks to a delivery of three written-off late-model cars from national insurance company Suncorp.

The vehicles will play a key role in providing students with real-world training in repairs and maintenance.

TAFE NSW Head Teacher for Light Automotive, Dave Allen said, “We already have plenty of state-of-the-art training equipment, but having whole cars will make a difference. They will be a valuable practical teaching and learning resource that will enable students to be job-ready, to learn how to bring a damaged car up to a customer’s expectations.”

“It’s the hands-on experience TAFE NSW provides that sets us apart from other training providers and ensures students receive currency of training. These vehicles will be integral in our training and used every week, shared across automotive repair and maintenance, panel beating and vehicle painting, and our light vehicle apprentices, pre-apprentices and high school students.”

TAFE NSW is Australia’s largest training provider, offering over 1,200 courses, from certificates to degrees. Many can be studied online via TAFE Digital. Visit or call 131 601.
