About TAFE

TAFE institutes are the public providers of vocational education and training (VET) in Australia. As public entities, they:


Help state and territory governments ensure that skills needs are met
Deliver VET programming in rural and regional communities
Deliver VET programming in markets where it would be unprofitable for other providers to do so
Support access and equity by providing supports to any enrolled learner seeking to gain skills


TAFE institutes enrolled more than 1.2 million students in 2016, and our members continue to enjoy a majority share of government-funded training. TAFE remains the dominant partner in vocational education and training (VET) across most of Australia’s core skilled occupations, and with major Australian industry.
