Our mission is to contribute to our region by providing flexible education and training
opportunities that support students, employers and industry. In so doing we support
the economic, cultural and social development of our region.
We have been on an exciting journey in recent years. In 2011 we were awarded the
title of Victorian Large Training Provider of the Year, and in 2012 we significantly
restructured our organisation to finalise our moves towards being the region’s
pre-eminent education and training provider.
Throughout our journey we have never forgotten that our core business is teaching
and learning. We work in partnership with all levels of government, higher education
institutions, regional secondary colleges, industries, employers, other service
providers and our local communities to create a highly trained workforce and a pool
of work-ready graduates capable of achieving career success. Our facilities are
situated across our region and are second to none.

and we therefore invest in our staff through ongoing professional development and

For all of these reasons, we welcome you to join the many students and clients who
continue to benefit from their study or work with South West TAFE, and I thank you
