As the next generation of business leaders, they are thinking about it now, they are already looking closely at opportunities that are likely to present when they graduate. T-next is a means to nurture and inform them and the people around them with exciting information about what’s going on in Western Sydney’s business and industry world, to help them to understand and evaluate their next step as professionals and see where they can fit. With 10 issues a year, the information will keep coming, constantly updating and expanding their underlying interest in the working world they are about to enter.

Among many other features every issue, there will be information and stories from the environment in which they ‘live’ ... the TAFE WSI campus, providing important information about courses and TAFE’s learning processes. This magazine is a great opportunity for young professionals to participate in a real commercial project and put their finger on the pulse of local business and industry while they are still at their student’s desk.

If we have any concern about the production of a great and valuable magazine, it is that we will be over-subscribed. It is a commercial venture of course, but the more we explore the possibilities for T-next, the more excited we have become about the value of the service that it will provide for those 100,000 TAFE students and for those who will follow in the years to come. The conduit that T-next will provide for its readers is as much a service for sponsors and advertisers whose information is vital for students and mentors to make the best possible plan for the future.
