Two new positions created at Deniliquin.By Tyla Harrington
Two new positions have been created at Deniliquin’s TAFE campus as part of phase two of the TAFE NSW review.
The positions form part of the Riverina Institute’s newly created Business, Community and Partnerships team.
Shandra Simpson, who was a casual employee at Deniliquin TAFE, now takes on the full-time position of workforce and community development manager.
Another part-time employee, Robyn Campbell, has accepted the full-time position as the school engagement officer.
There is also a new research and tender coordinator at the Finley Campus.
‘‘These new positions have been created in response to our desire to be more responsive to the needs of our local industry and community,’’ geographic manager for the Deniliquin, Finley and Hay campuses Leanne Small said.
‘‘I’m really enjoying working closely with community representatives to facilitate this process.
‘‘It’s been hugely rewarding and I’m looking forward to forging new partnerships and relationships.’’.
Last month, Mrs Small denied the TAFE review had claimed administration jobs and altered the roles of teachers at the Deniliquin campus.
When asked last week whether there was potential for job losses as part of the review, Mrs Small said ‘‘they’re still going through it’’.
‘‘The new positions are a result of phase two .
‘‘There is still a review across the institute.’’
The final outcome of the review is not expected to be known until the end of this term.
Phase three of the review is also believed to be under way and will look at program delivery and communication.
Phase one of the review was completed last year and resulted in Mrs Small being appointed to replace Deniliquin head of campus Matt Bennett.
