TAFE courses enliven an undead career

FROM advanced cake decorating and barista courses to wool handling and zombie films Hunter TAFE has the A to Z of commercial and cultural courses all sewn up in 2013.

Hunter TAFE’s courses have been in demand in 2013 with enrolments across Hunter TAFE’s 15 campuses having already overtaken figures for this time last year.

The TAFE said online registrations have doubled since January 2012 and phone inquiries and website visits are at an all time high.

The most registrations have been in childcare, ageing and disability and welfare programs.

Hunter TAFE director Phil Cox said some high-demand courses were already full and it was important to enrol quickly.

“A short course at Hunter TAFE can give you a taste of a new area of learning or enhance career skills,” Mr Cox said.

“With up to 200 programs across a range of industry areas, short courses are perfect for school leavers taking a gap year or unsure of their vocational direction.”

In the zombie film school course students learn to make a zombie film from make-up and special effects through to camera, sound and lights.

It followed strong enrolments in the first zombie film course held last year.
