The Impact of COVID on TAFEs: National and International Perspectives


On 3 December 2020, TDA and its corporate affiliate, TechnologyOne teamed up to present national and international perspectives on the impact of COVID-19.

During the presentation, TDA CEO Craig Robertson presented the key messages from the report The Power of TAFE: The COVID Story on how TAFEs responded and adapted to COVID. The report examines how approaches were adapted, and for which courses, how staff adjusted and how students felt. Importantly it reflects on what this means for the way that TAFEs operate into the future.

Matt Arnott, Sales Director, Education and Peter Nikoletatos, Industry Director, Education from TechnologyOne shared interesting perspectives from their global customers on the impact of COVID on education including the rise of mental health related issues, new challenges faced by staff, new learning experiences and inclusion and access issues.
