Tocal's practical advantage

26practicalThis book traces the history of Tocal College, and explores the reasons why Tocal has thrived since it was established 50 years ago, while many 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 the 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.
