The Victorian TAFE Association conducts regular events, seminars, meetings and conferences throughout the year. Regular meetings and seminars are part of the VTA’s professional development program. All of our meetings and seminars are designed to meet the needs and concerns of our members and are held at venues in Melbourne and regional areas. They are held exclusively for our members and associate members.
