I have been Chief Executive Officer since the start of 2018, and I am delighted to be part of a workforce that is passionate about providing opportunities for Tasmanians, and other students from Australia and overseas, to develop the skills you need for your future career.

At TasTAFE you will experience vocational education and training that is practical, hands-on, and will provide you with job-ready skills in line with the needs of your selected industry. Our courses are designed to give you opportunities to gain real-life experience in a range of simulated work environments, industry work placements and community projects – and we can also provide you with the skills and know-how to start your own business and to be your own boss!

TasTAFE has strong relationships with industry that ensures that the vocational education and training you receive is relevant and provides you with real industry skills that are highly valued by employers.

Each year we have around 22,000 enrolments, including around 5000 apprentices, with trade apprentice numbers continuing to grow. We offer more than 200 nationally accredited and industry-endorsed qualifications ranging from Certificate I to Advanced Diploma level, and a wide range of short courses and skill sets across more than 30 industry areas.

TasTAFE is the largest public provider of vocational education and training in Tasmania. We deliver our training through a modern network of 16 campuses and training facilities located across Tasmania, as well as in the workplace and online. Our experienced teachers have industry currency and competency, and we’re proud to offer a range of supportive learning environments and support services to help you along your education and training journey.
