Diversity and inclusion

TasTAFE is dedicated to creating a learning environment which values and appreciates the rich diversity of our students.

We recognise and respect individual differences and value the unique experiences, knowledge and skills that all students bring.

TasTAFE has students who come from all parts of Tasmania both rural and urban, from other states of Australia and from many countries across the world and are diverse in gender, gender identity, abilities, caring commitments, languages, ethnicity, cultural background, age, sexual orientation and religious beliefs.

Our priority is to create a positive learning environment for all our students, which promotes equality and inclusive practices, is free from bullying, discrimination and harassment, and is supportive of the specific needs of all individuals.

Diversity is celebrated through active promotion of, and participation in, a wide range of events including:

  • International Day for People with Disability
  • NAIDOC Week
  • Harmony Day
  • National Sorry Day
  • R U OK? Day
  • Mental Health Week
  • National Aboriginal Children’s Day
  • IDAHOBIT (International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia)
  • Wear It Purple (for LGBTQI Youth).
