Aboriginal programs

TAFE Western is committed to providing knowledge, skills for life and career pathways for Aboriginal people. We lead the way in increasing cultural competence through Aboriginal Cultural Education, Aboriginal Mentoring and other Aboriginal programs. We customised these programs to meet specific industry and client needs.  TAFE Western:

  • is the single largest provider of vocational education and training for Aboriginal People in Australia
  • won the 2013 Institute of the Year in the TAFE NSW Gilli Awards.

Our programs are used across the state and nation to assist other organisations to recruit and retain Aboriginal Staff.  You may also like to read about TAFE Western work with Aboriginal Communities.
