Are you interested in developing your career options? BBELS now has a Direct Entry agreement with NSW TAFE. This means our Upper-intermediate and Advanced level students can enter a NSW TAFE course without sitting the IELTS exam. This is fantastic news for students who wish to stay in Australia and study at a tertiary level.
NSW TAFE has a huge variety of courses including: commercial cookery, hospitality and tourism, social work, graphic design, fashion design, carpentry. Several of our graduates are already enrolled in these courses and have told us how much they are enjoying them.

Several of the courses offered by NSW TAFE offer work placement after graduating. The commercial cookery course at the Kingscliff campus is one such course. We have also been told that the job prospects of graduates from the social work course are quite strong as Australia has a shortage of people working in this industry.
The local North Coast TAFE has several campuses, many of them within driving distance from Byron Bay. You could choose to study in either Kingscliff, Ballina, Lismore, Murwillumbah while still living in the Byron Bay region.
Please speak with Sonia or Jaydea if you would like to know more about studying at NSW TAFE.
