The Victorian Carpentry Teachers' Network (VCTN) draws its members from TAFEs, dual sector universities that deliver certificate II and III in Carpentry and schools that are auspiced by those institutions.
The Network meets 4 times a year at various locations around Victoria.
Membership is limited to people that are either employed directly by a TAFE or associated with a TAFE (auspicing).
The Victorian VET Practitioners’ Network (VPN) is a peak network for TAFE practitioners delivering accredited qualifications in training and assessment. The Network was formed in 2001 with members drawn from all Victorian TAFE institutes and dual sector Universities. The Network liaises closely with the VET Development Centre, CMM Service Industries and Further Education, the Victorian TAFE Staff Development Network and the Victorian TAFE Association.
The objectives of the VPN are to provide collegiate support for the public TAFE providers in their delivery of the Diploma of VET Practice and the TAA Training Package by providing a forum for:
- discussion around the development of the teaching skills of TAFE teachers;
- the sharing of resources;
- dissemination of information about delivery strategies; and
- the validation and moderation of assessments.
The VPN has been actively engaged in the development of the Training and Assessment Training Package and the Graduate Certificate in VET. Members provide advice to TAFE management on qualifications leading to qualifications for a contemporary VET workforce.
The VPN facilitates professional development activities for its members.

Refer to Network Registry
Within any industry, the importance of communicative interactions is critical to growth and vitality
There are a plethora of networks and professional relationships operating across TAFE building the capability and raising the profile of the public TAFE sector. It is for these reasons that the Assocation has developed a network strategy which includes the development of a registry of existing networks operating with a unity of purpose in a collegiate environment. These are a valuable resource for fostering ideas, innovation, solutions and initiatives.
Victorian TAFE Network Registry
The network registry listed below has been compiled by the VTA to inform the public TAFE sector and to facilitate a further opportunity for communication within and between networks who often address the same issues at the same time, albeit from different perspectives.
Through connecting networks of executives, managers, coordinators, teachers and practitioners, the register is intended to help build the capability of the sector.
It is worth noting the following factors
Some institutes have more than one member, some have none
Some institutes send senior executives and others officers, practitioners, teachers and coordinators
- Cross networks
Some individuals are on multiple networks depending on their function and role profile
- Some networks have government membership
- Some networks have subscriptions
This register is considered to be ‘work in progress’ and any amendments or additions are most welcome.
