TAFE NSW staff today joined with Managing Director Jon Black in launching the organisation’s new Strategic Plan, a document focused on delivering the skilled workforce that western NSW needs now and into the future.
Mr Black said TAFE NSW was embarking on exciting and unprecedented development and change right across NSW, with the Strategic Plan 2016-22 identifying an innovative path forward that will benefit students in western NSW.
“The TAFE NSW Strategic Plan 2016-22 is a future-focused and customer-centric plan with a refreshed vision, purpose and core values to ensure we remain the state’s leading education and training provider in the VET sector,” Mr Black said.
"Ultimately the plan seeks to leverage the immense potential in our organisation to make a positive and widespread impact on the lives of individuals and whole communities throughout NSW.
“Above all, TAFE NSW will focus on offering flexible, responsive training that better meets the needs, wants and expectations of students and industry across NSW.”
Mr Black said the Strategic Plan 2016-22 identified four goals, including:

TAFE Western Institute Director Kate Baxter said the most pleasing aspect of the Strategic Plan for her was the fact it identified the need for TAFE NSW to remain an important part of local communities.
“TAFE NSW will firmly focus on the communities we are part of, and ensure equality of access to training for school leavers, young people at risk, unemployed, students in rural, regional and remote areas, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and learners with a disability,” she said.
“No-one will miss out – no matter their location, background or circumstances.”
