Campus update

GOTAFE announced last year that it would establish a new campus in Benalla’s CBD, where students and community members could easily access courses, career advice and development opportunities.

The new CBD location will enable improved GOTAFE presence within the Benalla community, a more integrated learning approach in partnership with industry, and a significantly enhanced student experience. The new location will also enable more short courses and night courses to be provided to the Benalla community, with improved security and accessibility.

GOTAFE’s new CBD campus is expected to be completed by the end of this year. GOTAFE courses will continue to be delivered from Benalla Performing Arts Centre (BPACC) and Benalla Health during this time. The former GOTAFE Samaria Road Campus is now the home of the Australian Christian College.

GOTAFE is committed to making education accessible to all in the Benalla community. It will continue to provide a free daily return bus service between Benalla and Wangaratta for its students.

Nursing Labs

Following the announcement of GOTAFE’s partnership with Benalla Health earlier this year, training facilities at the hospital are now being fitted out for Semester 2 intake.

The partnership with Benalla Health will benefit Diploma of Nursing students as by learning on-site at a hospital, GOTAFE students will have exposure to a real healthcare setting. Students will learn in a modern, fit-for-purpose training facility, gaining access to hands-on experience that will prepare them for a career in nursing.

Outdoor Recreation & Leadership

GOTAFE delivers Certificate IV Outdoor Leadership and a range of short courses in this area.

If you’re interested in Outdoor Leadership, please get in touch by sending an email or giving us a call.

Student Life

On a small but welcoming campus, students can use the student lounge or hang out on the lawns. The Benalla Performing Arts and Convention Centre (BPACC) is next to the GOTAFE campus, where you can see a movie with friends after class.
