TAFE Directors Australian (TDA)

TAFE Directors Australia (TDA) is the peak national that represents Australia’s 58 government owned Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutes and university TAFE divisions, and the Australia-Pacific Technical College (APTC).

What

The core business of TDA is to support its members with advocacy for the important role of TAFE under state and territory jurisdictions in meeting Australia’s need for increased productivity, participation and educational attainment in the workforce. The public provider (TAFE) network provides a diverse and integral series of technical and further education services for individuals, enterprises and communities in the emerging tertiary education sector in Australia.

Key to the role of TDA is to position TAFE nationally as the major provider of high quality skills; lead policy development for the TAFE and VET sectors; and to lead advocacy for improved outcomes for students. TDA conducts and commissions research and data collections in order to build a strong evidence base from which to advocate. Thus TDA is involved in data collection and economic modelling; consumer and industry research; producing and publishing position papers in response to policy initiatives, government reviews and inquiries.

Headline issues

Workforce development; students; community; vocational education/higher education; governance; economics of education and training.
