Phil Cox leaves Hunter TAFE
Phil Cox had his last day as CEO/Institute Director at Hunter TAFE on 13 February.
Mr Cox said that Hunter TAFE was well positioned to continue its role as one of Australia's leading regional providers of vocational education and training (VET).
"Hunter TAFE is well positioned and thoroughly prepared for entry into the new competitive VET market. The Institute was subsequently successful in winning a significant contract (one of the largest in NSW) under the new Smart and Skilled competitive funding arrangements for 2015.
"Hunter TAFE is where I had planned it to be and there is an excellent executive team in place, therefore now is the right time for me to seek other challenges and do something different," he said.
"I have been honoured to be part of such an amazing organisation," he said.
"I have been constantly amazed by the way Hunter TAFE people continually look to innovate and adapt how we meet the ever changing training and education needs of individuals, industries and our communities.
"I believe that what Hunter TAFE does, significantly contributes to the social and economic development of the Hunter and Central Coast regions and beyond,' he said.
