Kangan Institute’s Broadmeadows campus will receive a $60m boost towards stage one of its redevelopment as a part of the 2021/22 Victorian State Budget.
The funding will see the construction of a Health and Community Centre of Excellence beginning at the end of this year with a projected completion and operating date of 2024. The centre will allow Kagan Institute to deliver new courses in areas such as nursing, dental assisting, pathology collection, disability and early childhood in Melbourne’s north.
Kangan Institute’s Chief Executive Officer Sally Curtain said the funding would enable the TAFE’s flagship campus to deliver modern, digitally focused teaching and training.
Health Care and Social Assistance is the largest employment sector in Victoria and is projected to grow by 14.9 per cent by May 2023.
