Multicultural excellence award for Hunter TAFE
Hunter TAFE has been named a winner at the prestigious Australian Multicultural Marketing Awards (AMMA). Presented at the Sydney Opera House, Hunter TAFEs Multicultural Education Unit was awarded for its commitment to multicultural communities in the Hunter and Central Coast regions.
The Hunter TAFE Multicultural Education Unit actively promotes intercultural understanding through a number of initiatives, including cross-cultural awareness workshops, participation in harmony day, refugee week and other cultural and social events.
The Institute has worked on a collaboration of activities with schools and community based organisations to make sure communities had access and were aware of their study or career options at Hunter TAFE.
Hunter TAFE is committed to providing access to education and training to all by continually developing and delivering customised programs to cater for the diverse learners’ needs. This commitment has resulted in increased enrolments and articulation into higher vocational programs, university and employment.
The AMMAs are coordinated by the Community Relations Commission for a Multicultural NSW and are designed to showcase the achievements of organisations within the sphere of multicultural marketing.
