The Koorie Unit provides a learning environment where all students are respected and supported to learn new skills. The unit offers a range of support to its students (including those in mainstream courses) making sure you feel good about your Bendigo TAFE experience. Tutorial support is available for all courses.  Both Echuca and Bendigo City Campuses have dedicated work spaces for all courses.

There are courses available to assist you to improve your literacy, numeracy and employability skills in a dedicated course which focuses on your cultural heritage, along with those focussing on skills in a range of Visual Arts practices and Medias and generate a vocational approach to their art work.  Our students are encouraged to submit their work in a variety of competitions/awards both locally, regionally and beyond.

Prospective students wishing to undertake further tertiary studies in Visual Arts would also benefit from the folio preparation opportunities this course offers. If any of the above interests you, have a look at the courses currently available.
