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
This register is considered to be ‘work in progress’ and any amendments or additions are most welcome.
