Welcome to TAFE Directors Australia
TAFE Directors Australia (TDA) is the peak national body incorporated to represent Australia’s
national network of publicly owned Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutes and university TAFE divisions
and the Australia-Pacific Training Coalition (APTC).
TAFE Directors Australia acknowledges and pays its respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians of the land, rivers and sea. We acknowledge and pay our respects to the elders, past, present, and emerging, of all nations.

Our Vision

Our vision is for TAFE to be recognised as the pre-eminent provider of tertiary education in Australia and as a global standard in vocational education and training.

The priority for TAFE Directors Australia is to continue to demonstrate the power of the TAFE model. Not only in terms of its service across all communities in Australia but also its strong industry focus to bring contemporary skills and vocational education to all students so they can power the workforce and economic recovery.

We also look forward to continuing to work with our partners in Australia and overseas on improving the vocational education sector.
