Re-imagining TAFE for the future will be the focus of a national conference in Sydney hosted by the Australian Education Union and the John Cain Foundation.
The “Future of Public TAFE Institutions – new social policy” will aim to begin formulating the sector’s mission, and consider what TAFE will look like in the future, as anchor institutions in their communities to help people realise their aspirations.
Speakers at the conference will include Professor Leesa Wheelahan (University of Toronto), Dr Jim Stanford (Centre for Future Work), Professor John Buchanan (University of Sydney Business School), Professor Valerie Braithwaite (ANU), Professor Anne Jones (Victoria University) and John Pardy (Monash University).
The event will be held at the NSW Teachers Federation Conference Centre on Friday, 20 October, from 10am to 5pm. Tickets will cost $50 for AEU members, and $200 for general admission.
