State quietly closes Tewantin TAFE campus

NOOSA councillor Sandy Bolton is keen for a new training purpose to be found for the Tewantin TAFE campus site after she was shocked to find it had closed without formal notice.

"I only heard about (the closure) about a week ago," Cr Bolton said.

"I didn't even know that the training arm had basically shut up shop."

But TAFE Queensland East Coast general manager Paul Wilson said Noosa had not closed.

Mr Wilson said TAFE had moved from Tewantin to The J in Noosa on July 1.

"TAFE Queensland East Coast undertook a review of its course offering and identified that better service for the Noosa community could be achieved by transitioning delivery from the previous facility at Tewantin," he said.

The Sunshine Coast Daily mooted the Tewantin campus closure in February this year after 27 TAFE jobs were axed by the state government as part of a regional amalgamation.
