New South Wales – Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institues

    Primarily vocational training is provided up the level of advanced diplomas in Technical and Further Education(TAFE) institutes. These are tertiary education courses in over 130 campuses throughout the state. The TAFEs provide Certificate, Diploma and Associate Degrees which usually take about 1 to 2 years to complete. Fields covered include hospitality, tourism, construction, engineering, secretarial skills, visual arts, computer programming and community work. TAFE colleges are owned, operated and financed by the various State and Territory Governments. This is in contrast to the higher education sector, whose funding is predominantly the domain of the Commonwealth.

There are ten TAFE NSW Institutes in NSW which include:

Hunter Institute

Illawarra Institute

New England Institute

North Coast Institute

Northern Sydney Institute

Riverina Institute

South Western Sydney Institute
