TAFE RESPONDING TO COVID-19

TAFES ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS BUT IT’S NOT BUSINESS AS USUAL

These continue to be unprecedented times with the COVID-19 pandemic impacting lives and livelihoods. TAFE leaders are playing their part in ensuring their institutions, teachers/staff and students continue to be connected and adapting to new ways of learning.
