In 2012, TAFE SWSI designed, developed and delivered the Diploma of Management (BSB51107) and the Certificate IV in Frontline Management (BSB40812) to employees of the NSW Police Force.
Working together with the NSW Police Force, TAFE SWSi provided a tailored solution to meet their training requirements.
The delivery of the Diploma of Management and the Certificate IV in Frontline Management included a series of workshops, online delivery and tutorial support as well as a facilitated mentoring program.
The TAFE SWSi Aboriginal Unit supported the program providing guidance, advice and funding to support travel for remote employees who completed training.
Approximately 45 Aboriginal students from across NSW Police participated in this program as well as fifteen high-ranking staff members positioned in mentoring roles.

"Trainers made every effort to ensure course content was discussed within the context of our internal policies, procedures and processes.
“TAFE SWSi teachers, personnel and business consultants really respect their client’s needs – and they showed passion and commitment throughout their teaching and delivery.”

During 2012 TAFE SWSi joined together with Newleaf Communities and the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace relations to implement the ‘Beautifying Bonnyrigg’ community project.
Initiated by Bonnyrigg Newleaf Communities Housing Estate, the project was a community-focused education and development project designed to engage indigenous, mature age and youth job seekers in south western Sydney and provide them with sustainable employment outcomes.
Sixteen students completing TAFE SWSi’s 14 week Certificate II in Horticulture took part in the Newleaf community project.
Working together with Newleaf, TAFE SWSi was able to provide students with an opportunity to develop their skills and find employment; while at the same time assist Newleaf and the community develop the Bonnyrigg housing estate.
As a result of the program, 14 participants completed work placements to gain competencies and skills, and five graduates remained employed with the Newleaf Community renewal project after course completion. Other graduates received assistance in finding employment to pursue a horticulture apprenticeship.
“The teaching and mentoring provided by TAFE SWSi to students was highly commendable. The teachers demonstrated strong leadership, guidance, patience, dedication and support that contributed to an impressive success rate of completion."
