TAFE Directors Australia

Supporting our member institutes since 1998



Strategic Plan

TAFE Directors Australia provides leadership on the national agenda, and seeks to position TAFE and its dual sector members as quality and trusted providers working with industry, community and students to produce excellence in a fast-changing tertiary education sector.

The core business of TDA is:

  • advocacy on behalf of members for the important role of TAFE, operating in competitive national training markets but with different state and territory requirements;
  • support a national network for TAFE on quality and validation of qualifications, aligning with industry needs;
  • leadership on policy to enhance TAFE’s reputation as Australia’s trusted quality provider in vocational and higher education;
  • providing services to support the TAFE network and our dual sector universities, with tuition assurance certification, bilateral international education agreements and negotiations, and a national student scholarship scheme.
