Protecting children and young people

In line with NSW Government legislation, TAFE NSW is committed to promoting the safety, welfare and well-being of children and young people (defined legally as people under 18 years of age). Such legislation imposes obligations on public sector agencies such as TAFE Western Institute, to protect young people and children, whether they are students, apprentices or trainees in schools, campuses, workplaces or programs conducted by TAFE NSW or under the auspices of TAFE NSW. 

TAFE NSW employees are required by law and/or by departmental policy, to report children and young people suspected to be at risk of harm, to the NSW Department of Community Services.
