Convention 2020

It is with regret that TAFE Directors Australia (TDA) has cancelled its 2020 convention, due to be held in Perth from 12 to 14 August this year.

TDA will continue to support TAFEs throughout the coronavirus event and its aftermath. TDA will work with governments, corporate partners and industry on finding the best ways to address the unprecedented challenges that the sector is facing.

We also keep the safety and welfare of our TAFE staff and students, both domestic and those who chose Australia as their education destination, at the forefront of our actions.

We look forward to continuing to work with our partners in Australia and overseas on improving the vocational education sector and we will provide further updates when planning commences for the TDA Convention in 2021.
