Director’s message The 120th anniversary of the first permanent facility that would become Ultimo College was a major focus for our Institute during 2011. However, it was the way in which students past and present, graduates, teachers, staff and the community joined together that was the real celebration. For me, that made 2011 special. The celebrations lit a way for the future. Rather than just blowing trumpets and waving flags, at every step TAFE NSW – Sydney Institute’s people actually wove training into celebrations, using events, exhibitions, workshops, tours and even dinners to give our students the opportunity to build, design, create and serve in today’s Sydney. Of course, the anniversary celebrations also respected the past. The history of Sydney Institute cannot be separated from the communities we serve. Women were re-trained for wartime roles; servicemen were trained for wartime duties. After wars, people were re-skilled for civilian life, and society reorganised itself for new goals. Training has continually developed to meet the needs of the community and it was only through this growth and response to community that Sydney Institute came into being. From refugees to at-risk youth to updating industry about new sustainable technologies, Sydney Institute responds to customers. Bridges and pathways were built to tertiary study when it became clear that this was what the system needed. And then, in 2011 – again, when industry and community asked for it – our students graduated with TAFE NSW degrees. Sydney Institute continues to innovate to meet the needs of our customers. Industry and the community are always consulted. And that’s not because we don’t know what we are doing, or are not innovative and passionate about our jobs. It’s not because we are hesitant. It’s because we know exactly what to do: explore, innovate, finetune, adapt and update. This Annual Report collates many of the highlights of a special year. I’m loath to single out any one person or program here. I’m proud that we were able to achieve so much excellence in more areas than ever before. The technologies change but the theme of industry, community and student responsiveness stays the same. Thank you for being part of Sydney Institute in 2011.

A history of changing lives When the doors first opened in 1891, no-one could have foreseen how important Sydney Institute would be in delivering vocational education to students, both here in Sydney and now around the world. Not only was Sydney Institute (known then as Sydney Technical College) the first permanent technical education provider in NSW, it also lists as honour roll graduates the first Australian woman architect (Florence May Taylor CBE), first Australian environment minister (Jack Beale AO), first Indigenous appointee to an Australian court (Bob Bellear), first famous Australian aviator (Charles Kingsford Smith MC, AFC) and Australia’s first female electrical engineer who later founded and directed the Women’s Emergency Signalling Corps, the starting point for the Women’s Royal Australian Naval Service, WRANS (Florence McKenzie OBE). Over the last 120 years the Institute has continually reinvented itself to keep up with ever-changing technology and skill demands. From meeting the needs of its original 3,500 students to today’s 70,000 annual enrolments, it has been fundamentally involved in changing hundreds of thousands of lives. In 1917 the first chemical engineering course in Australia was introduced and staff and students produced the first-ever Australian piece of aluminium in the same period. The Institute was the first optometry training provider in the state and its teachers presented the first educational series broadcast on commercial Sydney television in 1960. During WWII almost 150,000 Australian and US service personnel received wartime training by correspondence right across Australia and the South Pacific and the college operated around-the-clock defence training classes as part of the Commonwealth Defence Training Scheme.

Two of Australia’s most prestigious universities were also born from units within the Institute – the University of NSW (1949) and University of Technology, Sydney (which arose from the NSW Institute of Technology created in 1965) – and it was also the first home of what is now the Powerhouse Museum. The Institute’s continued growth is a testament to its relevance in the 21st century. 2011 saw the Institute offer the first-ever TAFE NSW degree, the Bachelor of Design (Interior Design), as well as opening Australia’s first Sustainable Hydraulics Trade Centre. Celebrating 120 years of excellence is a tribute to the success of the staff and students of Sydney Institute and a timely reminder that a TAFE education, whether past, present or future, is more than you imagine.

Recognition of excellence The 120th anniversary celebrations were developed to increase support for both the Sydney Institute and TAFE NSW brands. Events and activities were strategically planned to showcase the amazing array of student work and challenge traditional public perceptions of vocational education. The anniversary was a prime opportunity to demonstrate Sydney Institute’s unique ability to adapt and respond to Australia’s changing economic and social environment as well as reinforce its strong connections with industry and the Australian community as a whole. Events targeted industry and government bodies, media, prospective students and the general public. Current students and staff plus past graduates and colleagues were not forgotten with many activities developed specifically for them. With over 23 distinct programs, the anniversary certainly delivered more than you could imagine. The Institute held launches, races, dinners, competitions, exhibitions, showcases, awards, walking tours, and multimedia and art shows. From careers-in-focus talks to ambassador master classes, the Weird Food dinner to Style, Scissors & a Fantasy: The Alina Galasso Retrospective, all of our teaching areas were celebrated and thanked for the amazing work they have achieved, past, present and future.

2011 IPROWD graduates

Sydney Institute continued to adapt and innovate to assist students to start careers, change careers, upskill, or get a foothold in the world of work. The most fun way there is to learn about business

The Break Through Mentoring Program

Cop that! IPROWD graduates

The Youth Pathways initiative – Get Started in the music industry – began as a partnership between Ultimo Adult Basic Education and the Ultimo music section. This innovative program opened a music industry door to a group of educationally and socio-economically disadvantaged youth and increased their skills and confidence in many ways.

2011 was the crucial year for the Break Through Mentoring Program, a threeyear pilot that began in 2009 with the aim of establishing youth employment mentoring for unemployed Koori youth of the La Perouse area.

Indigenous Police Recruitment Our Way Delivery (IPROWD), a state-wide partnership between TAFE NSW, the NSW Police Force and the Australian Government, provided Aboriginal students with the skills to join the NSW Police.

“All the students seemed to respond to and thrive in this program,” said Kerry Furlong, Head Teacher of Music at Ultimo College. “They all finished the program with clearer work and study goals.” “Six of the students have now enrolled in higher-level music-related courses at Sydney Institute and students who were once terrified of public speaking have now performed plenty of times on stage – they’re going to be way more confident in lots of areas including job interviews.” “Music is the most fun way there is to learn about business. You can apply the marketing techniques to anything. A lot of the development of literacy skills came because they learned to market their songs. We taught them how to record their own music and put it up for sale online.”

12

Built on an existing Live N Learn program, Break Through was adapted in collaboration with the Yulang Aboriginal Education and Training Unit to engage local businesses with Koori youth through mentoring to promote education and employment. This led to the following successes. // 42 local Aboriginal youth signed up to the program voluntarily and 36 commenced face-toface sessions with a trained employment mentor. // 38 of 40 students passed through five different TAFE Mentoring and Cultural Education training courses run at Eora College. // 19 businesses supported the program. // 35 locally employed people trained as employment mentors. // 21 young people gained employment experience. // 12 young people returned to education or training. // Several young people found and maintained employment.

IPROWD was tightly customised to student needs, with a strong focus on fitness, the police culture, roles and ethics, as well as Aboriginal culture. Students had on-going support from an Aboriginal mentor. Of the 19 students, 16 graduated with Certificate III in Vocational and Study Pathways which meets the academic entry into Charles Sturt University NSW Police Academy, and 15 of those graduates applied for admission to the NSW Police College. The post-program evaluation resulted in a number of strategies for improvement in 2012, including streamlining of assessment workshops; more regular meetings with TAFE NSW and police to ensure local needs are being met; and further development of partnerships with local organisations.

Enterprise customers

Coco Republic Design School

Sydney Institute continues to link students and organisations in order to produce the best graduates with the best skills for the best enterprises. Coco Republic partnership grows and grows Students flocked to enrol in nationally recognised short courses in interior design, styling and colour at the Coco Republic Design School (CRDS), a unique training partnership between Design Centre Enmore and one of Australia’s leading furniture and design brands. Coco Republic commissioned a practical learning space as part of the refurbishment and expansion of their Alexandria premises, and Design Centre Enmore contextualised their new training and education programs. Student enrolments spiked significantly, with the courses’ close industry links and response to customer demand behind the success. “Our courses are increasing and the partnership has only been around a short while. We’re always looking for new opportunities for short study. The shortness of the courses we have developed through the partnership gives students a good indication of what’s involved, and a number of our students have gone on to study other courses at Enmore,” said CRDS manager Lyndsay Howlin.

Southern Steel strong contract

Training partnership turns industry sectors green

Southern Steel named Sydney Institute a preferred registered training organisation (RTO) to deliver general communications training. The program was part of the Workplace English Language and Literacy (WELL) program, which was funded by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations on a competitive grant basis.

EcCell Greenskills Training and Sydney Institute partnered to develop and deliver a Certificate IV in Environmental Management and Sustainability for the facility management and property and construction industries.

The 36-week program focused on building confidence and encouraging workers to participate effectively in a range of workplace training activities. Warehousing and manufacturing employees improved their English communication skills including oral communication, nonverbal communications, work-team effectiveness, computer skills and numeracy. Sydney Institute developed small group tutorials and individual sessions. All training was delivered on-site at Milperra.

“The real advantage of this course is its intended for application on the job and the training can be applied at the workplace,” said Patrick Nolan, Executive Director of EcCell Environmental. “It’s particularly well suited to the overall trend of the economy which is towards cleaner and more sustainable technologies. The range and the depth of the course are strong, particularly because invited speakers give currency and immediacy. All speakers have a very relevant working background and are familiar with current and developing trends and issues.” Patrick said the response to the course was overwhelming and it continues to grow.

Highlights Bridging skills gap with Ramsay Health Care A consortium that included Sydney Institute and Ramsay Health Care set about exploring ways to bridge Ramsay Health Care’s skills gaps. As a result, Sydney Institute designed an innovative strategy for the Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled/ Division 2 Nursing) which attracted students to train at St George College. Clinical placements and assessments were provided by Ramsay Health Care, which also employed students who completed the course. On completion of the diploma program, students are also eligible to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia. Funding for the diploma was secured through the Australian Government’s Productivity Places Program, and approval was gained so students could apply for VET FEE-HELP from 2012.

Courses were marketed to local pre-schools and a partnership was developed with Sutherland Shire Day Care. There was an intake of students every six weeks for experienced child care workers, and individual learning strategies were developed with one-on-one 17.3% support and workplace assessment. Flexibility improved with students determining completion times to 21.7% balance work/life commitments, 61.0% 61 0% and additional support offered from Student Services. As a result, RPL increased for the section from 1 per cent of total delivery in 2009 to 21 per cent in 2011.

Tertiary customers

First six students graduate with TAFE NSW degree

One hundred and twenty years ago, Sydney Institute started building bridges to tertiary study. Since then it has evolved to create pathways to assist students to pursue degrees. Now it offers its own degrees. Sydney Institute continues to innovate to meet the needs of its tertiary customers. After a fashion After studying textile design and then gaining an Advanced Diploma of Fashion Design from Sydney Institute’s Fashion Design Studio, Phoebe Langdon articulated into an associate degree course in India. Studying at the Pearl Academy of Fashion in Jaipur was an extraordinary step: educationally, professionally and personally. “I spent a year learning and creating as much as I could,” said Phoebe. “I gained so much experience in terms of production over there, and acquired skills.”

Runway runaway Sydney Institute graduates came first and third in TV show Project Runway Australia. Unique prints and dramatic designs earned Fashion Design Studio graduate Dylan Cooper the crown in the popular show’s third season. St George College School of Fashion’s Johnny Schembri was awarded third place.

Online sport and recreation course

Degree conferred, degrees rolled out

Australia’s first-ever online Diploma of Sport and Recreation Administration course was developed by Sutherland College to help fill demand for skilled workers in sport and recreation facilities. The course – provided via Open Universities Australia – provides a new dimension to train staff in the operation of fitness centres, aquatic centres and sporting facilities, or to manage sporting organisations.

Six students from Design Centre Enmore made history when they received the first-ever degrees offered by TAFE NSW at NSW Parliament House.

“The unparalleled flexibility of this course combines study with work in or out of the sport and recreation industry,” said NSW Minister for Education, Adrian Piccoli, at the launch. “It even caters for sportspeople currently involved in an elite training regime.”

Graduate Jacinta Ring spoke about how her classmates jumped at the opportunity to study for the Bachelor of Design (Interior Design) after completing the Advanced Diploma of Interior Design. “The degree is a perfect balance of theoretical and practical-based learning,” said Jacinta. “I gained an alternative pathway that has enabled me to reach my goal of higher learning. As a result I am the first person in my family to gain a degree. I won’t be the last!” Sydney Institute also developed the following higher education qualifications: // Bachelor of 3D Art and Animation // Bachelor of Applied Finance (Financial Planning) // Associate Degree of Accounting

Going global

Visual merchandising students in Barneys, New York

Sydney Institute is “Going Global” – from ensuring classrooms are welcoming and effective places for all cultures, to assisting the Indian Government to re-skill one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, to giving students first-hand international experience. Singapore offers priceless experience Twelve advertising students from Ultimo College travelled to Singapore for a two-week multicultural advertising study tour. Students gained an insight into industry practices by visiting major agencies, participating in workshops, and experiencing the renowned Spikes Asia Advertising Festival. Marcus Bear, Ultimo College advertising teacher, said the trip was inspiring and a great fit for the students’ education package. ”It offered an ideal mix of academic excellence, hands-on industry experience, as well as an introduction to a competition where the best creative minds from the region were exhibiting their work.”

Students take Manhattan Students from Ultimo College’s Diploma of Visual Merchandising course spent almost a fortnight in New York, attending conferences and networking with senior industry professionals. Student team leader Joshua Lunney said it was an extraordinary educational experience. “I became aware that Australian retailers need to lift their game,” said Joshua. “I got to see the trends and gain tonnes of international industry experience.” In New York, Sydney Institute was the only international education provider represented at the White Wonders Holiday Exhibition, part of the 15th PAVE Gala.

Going Global has big benefits The winner of the 2011 Randwick College Achievement Award Toby Clare, traces his success to two Sydney Institute building and carpentry trips to Samoa to help rebuild parts of a tsunami-struck village. “The Samoan experience made me more driven,” said Toby Clare, who completed his Certificate IV in Building and Construction and is now adding value to his training with a plumbing course. “I am better prepared now to set goals and push myself to achieve them. Samoa also taught me to be more versatile in my thinking and to try new approaches to problemsolving. I feel I walked away from the experience with a greater change in my outlook towards life.”

Community and industry engagement

The vibrancy, diversity and strength of Sydney Institute is ensured by its relationships. Far from an ivory tower, Sydney Institute is a hub for the communities and industries that embrace it, and it thrives when they thrive. Training that engages the community benefits student outcomes. Students experience the Chinese New Year

A real opportunity for costume design

Students from different courses and colleges collaborated with the Creative Works Australia team to help welcome in the Chinese Year of the Rabbit.

The 150-year anniversary celebrations of Derby Day, held at Royal Randwick in April, were the perfect opportunity for costume design students from Ultimo College to apply their training.

As part of their invaluable work experience, students from the Diploma of Costume Design at Ultimo College and the Advanced Diploma of Live Production and Events at Design Centre Enmore helped create costumes and props for the 2011 Chinese New Year Parade.

Students researched social and fashion history in order to create sophisticated period costumes. It was all about showing punters exactly what the garments worn at race meetings in a bygone era looked like, and it created a huge buzz at the event. Many of the people in the members’ stand took the chance to take photos and chat with the students about costumes, fashion, the history of the day, and the students’ courses.

Students were involved in all aspects of costume and prop design. The hands-on work continued at the parade with performer fittings, lastminute changes and scheduling. “The students felt confident in their work,” said Glenda Mitchell, Head Teacher of Costume. “They were well prepared because their course provides them with the knowledge and skills that enabled them to work successfully in both the production workrooms and also on the night of the event.”

Historical costumes made by the talented students from the Diploma of Costume for Performance were also showcased in the NSW State Library’s exhibition, ‘On Sale! Shops and Shopping’. The exhibition explored how modes of shopping have changed – from general stores to stylish arcades and grand department stores.

Battle of the DJs Event management students from Ultimo College staged a competition in May 2011 at TONE bar in Surry Hills. As part of their course assessment, students worked on all aspects – from organising the talent to venue hire; from organising ticketing to promotion. Proceeds went to the Queensland Flood Relief Appeal.

Floristry students bloom at the 2011 Sydney Royal Easter Show For the first time, students from the Ultimo College floristry section participated in the famous Sydney Royal Easter Show Grand Parade. The team transformed the old ‘Cumberland Newspaper’ truck into a unique and show-stopping float. Floristry students also created a range of displays, taking inspiration from The Jungle Book and reinterpreting fairytales. “The floristry section received a great response,” said Christina Lewis, Head Teacher of Floristry. “Their displays in the Flower and Garden Pavilion were very popular with children and adults alike. The experience students receive from presenting their work at an event like the Royal Easter Show cannot be beaten!”

Our people

Leadership forum

Sydney Institute invested heavily in its people, and its people repaid the investment in a range of inspiring ways. Cultural awareness program

Developing excellence in leadership

Engaging in social learning

More than 211 staff participated in activities to build intercultural awareness, particularly in relation to teaching and learner engagement strategies.

Tapping internal expertise, Sydney Institute continued its culture of continual improvement by developing excellence in corporate leadership and head teacher performance. Leadership programs resulted in increased staff engagement, VET knowledge, planning, workforce development solutions and business acumen. Four leaders also undertook recognised leadership programs and developed higher-level capabilities.

Staff from travel and tourism introduced a social learning engagement strategy to students at diploma level and above. The strategy built on an existing flexible-delivery strategy combining face-to-face delivery supported by a Learning Management System (Moodle) and regular virtual conference sessions.

The 15 cultural awareness programs included Aboriginal education and access to the new Globesmart cultural awareness program. Sydney Institute exceeded the target of a five per cent increase in staff attendance. “Our teachers are better able to engage with their students from culturally diverse backgrounds by understanding the cultural differences and engagement techniques,” said Sydney Institute Director David Riordan. “Outcomes mean staff respond to the different learning approaches that mirror the diverse cultural perspectives of Sydney Institute learners.” New levels of skills and confidence were also achieved by staff who accompanied groups of students overseas on intensive study tours to destinations including Singapore and New York.

22

Head teachers used their program to streamline operational management, keep staff informed about the direction of VET, apply relationship management skills, and increase focus on supporting learners and commercial operations.

“The use of social networking certainly made the program more engaging and current,” said Steve Ferreira, Head Teacher, Travel and Tourism. “Students and teachers used their mobile devices to participate at a time and place that was convenient. It was helpful for all of us especially when group and project work demanded efficient and effective communication. Social media has laid the foundations for further program development.” Nancy Mikhail, Accounting and Finance Head Teacher, led the development of an eLearning framework for a fully online program for mainstream, commercial and Open Universities students. “The framework included setting up a Moodle learning environment, creating virtual lectures, implementing online, remote supervision ‘eAssessment’, and real-time virtual tutorial sessions,” said Nancy.

Sustainability

AutoCel artist’s impression

By offering sustainable and new technologies in its education and training programs as well as embracing sustainable practices in its day-to-day operations, Sydney Institute showed leadership and innovation. The result was to make giant strides while leaving small footprints. Building on new technologies in automotive Construction began on the AutoCel Transport Technology Centre funded by the Federal Government’s Educational Investment Fund (EIF). “Consultation with industry highlighted the need to provide flexible and adaptable training focusing on new and emerging technologies,” said Glenn Martyn, Automotive Head Teacher. “AutoCel is a direct response to the automotive sector’s push in areas such as electronics, fuel efficiency and reduced exhaust emissions.” “AutoCel will embrace best practice in environmental performance including the reduction of emissions, water and energy efficiency, lightingefficient devices and effective wastereduction practices with the inclusion of reclamation, recycling and reuse systems for oil, coolant and water.”

“AutoCel will also include an alternative fuels laboratory. A prime three-storey location on Wattle Street ensures Sydney Institute’s excellence in new and emerging technologies is showcased.”

Automotive teachers visit Germany Glenn Martyn and Les Simpson, Automotive Head Teachers at Ultimo College, visited Germany to observe and review training organisations who have adopted new e-learning strategies into course delivery. The teachers are developing ways of integrating this style of learning into AutoCel programs. “We saw a lot of trends emerging to do with simulators and other technologies in training,” said Glenn. “The trip gave us a lot of ideas to do with sustainability in training.”

Partner on OECD climate change project Sydney Institute partnered with the City of Sydney and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) on the international Climate Change, Employment and Local Development project. The project examines the impacts of climate change and environmental sustainability on local labour markets, including effects on policy and regulations. “The OECD project focuses on the creation of green jobs and the development of a skilled workforce to meet the needs of the greener economy,” said Andrew Eldridge, Sydney Institute Manager of Asset Planning. The OECD delegation reports that the Sustainable Hydraulic Skills Centre at Randwick College is “state-of-the-art” and “allows training in best practice green building skills”. TAFE NSW was recognised as having developed “cutting-edge green training curricula” with facilities that “clearly represent international best practice”.
