Richmond TAFE to receive $2m upgrade to Vet Training Facilities

The national vet shortage is putting added pressure on those currently working in the industry.  The vet industry also have very high suicide rates (1.7 to 4 times higher than the general population) and COVID-19 has added another burden.

With more and more people owning pets, the demand for Veterinary Nurses is on the rise.

The NSW Government has announced a $2 million expansion of vet training facilities at Richmond TAFE in order to boost its training capacity.
The new-look Veterinary Clinic will have a theatre, radiology and consultation rooms with construction expected to be completed in 2023. This improvement will enhance education and employment pathways for students.
Local State MP for Hawkesbury, Robyn Preston, caught up with some of the trainees and marvelled at their dedication to our feathered friends.  “It seems to me as though the turkeys rule the roost and guard the entrance against any trespassers, so I wasn’t about to argue back!” she said.
