Tocal’s Practical Advantage

Publisher Description

This book traces the history of Tocal College, and explores the reasons why Tocal has thrived since it was established 50 years ago, while many other agricultural training institutions have declined.

In the early years, Tocal was in many ways a smaller brother. But to survive, Tocal had to adapt. This required flexibility, a willingness to innovate, a pioneering spirit, the support of stakeholders and above all, political savvy.

It is a credit to the leadership of its Principals over the past 50 years that Tocal has not only adapted, but seized the initiative. It has transformed from a regional, residential-based institution to an industry-based, national training hub. It is embedded as an indispensible part of NSW Department of Primary Industries; a significant state asset with a strong national profile.

It provides flexible and customised training in regional areas throughout the State, with diverse projects across all agricultural industries. Tocal has become the service arm and major vehicle by which information and training is delivered to rural NSW.

Tocal has always emphasised its practical base. It specialises in training for rural skills; its publications in all their forms are practical and expressed in plain English; its trainers have wide industry credibility. It has been true to its roots, but always alive to greater possibilities and wider horizons.

This book is a glimpse into the journey so far.
