New South Wales Education and Career Landscape

For the first time in 16 years, the New South Wales Higher School Certificate (HSC) syllabus has undergone radical change, with new materials in 22 different subjects and the introduction of more complex topics in preparation for tertiary study.

The Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE), a not-for-profit collaboration between all New South Wales-based universities and TAFEs, is set to launch later this year. With a $25 million cornerstone investment from the state government in 2016, the institution will serve as a hub for fostering the entrepreneurial minded, taking up to 1000 students every year.

To learn more about the education and careers landscape in New South Wales, as well as on the national scale, ensure you attend the Sydney ACS Seminars.
