Why TasTAFE?

TasTAFE is the largest registered training organisation in Tasmania, and is proud to deliver more than 250 nationally accredited and industry-endorsed qualifications from Certificate I to Advanced Diploma level, to short courses and pre-vocational/pre-employment foundation programs.

Our range of qualifications and short courses are developed together with our industry partners and are designed to meet current and future industry needs.  This means that on completing a TasTAFE qualification, you’ll be walking away with skills that are currently in demand within your chosen field of study.

As a prospective employee, these practical, hands-on skills may provide you with an advantage in your search for a fulfilling career or as a pathway to further study, including links with the University of Tasmania.

If you already have prior skills or industry knowledge and experience, we can help you undertake assessment for recognition of prior learning and skills – which means that you could gain credit towards some or all of your qualification, or gain credit for further study at university.

We are Tasmania’s largest providers of training for apprentices and trainees and have built strong relationships with business and industry across the state.

As well as delivering training at our 11 campuses across the state, we offer workplace training to business and industry, and deliver training programs internationally in countries including China and the Philippines.

While applied, hands-on learning is an important part of the TasTAFE model, we also recognise that each of our students and business clients are unique. Everyone’s goals and ambitions differ and we understand that you may not learn in exactly the same way as others.

We’ve made sure that a range of flexible learning options are available, including online, workplace, self-paced and evening classes – which means that education and training programs can be tailored to suit your individual learning styles, interests and training needs.

We also understand that entering further education may be a little daunting to some people, so we offer a range of support services and foundation programs to help you on your chosen pathway.

Staff are available at each campus to provide you with advice and support throughout your TasTAFE journey.  So regardless of where you are in life, or what your past experience has been, we can help you gain the skills and opportunities you need for your future.
