Victorian TAFE Networks

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

  • Participation
    Some institutes have more than one member, some have none
  • Representation
    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.
