For over 130 years, TAFE NSW has not only upskilled the workforce to ensure the people of New South Wales prosper, but we have also strived to support our students’ employment ambitions and personal goals. Today, we offer over 1200 courses (from certificate to degree level), to over 500,000 students, but the roots of TAFE NSW are humbly embedded in Australia’s heritage.
The story of TAFE NSW has been shaped by many impactful events throughout Australia’s history. At each momentous point in time, we have responded by matching the shifting demands of the workforce and the economy. Rapid economic development and population growth in early colonial times meant the young country had a shortage of skilled labour, giving rise to an apprenticeship system and the establishment of technical education in the form of mechanics’ institutes and schools of arts.
