TAFE NSW Launches New Real Estate Course in Western Sydney

By TAFE NSW
Posted: 4 Nov 2020
TAFE NSW has  launched a new real estate course across four campuses in Western Sydney in response to a spike in demand for property services in the region.

The Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice is being offered at Campbelltown, Penrith, Bankstown and Granville, which are key growth areas surrounding the future aerotropolis and Western Parkland City.

Principal of Elders Real Estate Penrith/Wallacia, Damian Sexton, said the new TAFE NSW course had come at the right time for the region. 

“With the Department of Planning, Industry and the Environment forecasting the construction of 191,050 homes in Greater Sydney in the next five years, demand for real estate agents is growing.

“We are always looking for well-trained agents who are passionate about real estate in order to service our region and we look favourably upon TAFE NSW graduates because they are taught by experts who still work in the property industry,” Mr Sexton said.

The Federal?Government’s First Home Loan Deposit Scheme paired with the newly announced Home Builder program and efforts by the banks to provide relief to households through attractive fixed interest rates, has contributed to the rise in number of people looking to buy homes in Western Sydney.

Additionally, the population of Greater Western Sydney is projected to reach 3 million by 2036, making the region one of the largest growing urban populations in Australia.2

TAFE NSW Head Teacher of Business and Property, Susan Huntington, said the?Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice?is open for semester 1, 2021 enrolments. 

“The?course?has been?developed in consultation with local real estate agencies and industry to address updated educational requirements?in the?Property and Stock Agents Act 2002 (NSW).??

“Students?will be equipped?with?the latest?industry knowledge and practical?skills?they need?to pursue employment opportunities in the sector at a time where skilled agents are in high demand.”
