GOTAFE’s ambitious vision for education and training

By Seymour Telegraph

GOTAFE’s vision for the future of vocational training and education has been released through its 2020-2023 Education Strategy.

The strategy outlines a compelling roadmap to transform the future of education for students, industry and the community and how education programs will be delivered over the next three years.

It establishes a vision for GOTAFE to be a dynamic, holistic and innovative training partner for regional communities, with student success at the core of everything, and is the culmination of consultation with industry, community, staff and students over recent months.

GOTAFE education executive director Karen Taylor said the release of the education strategy was an important step in preparing GOTAFE to respond to the changing nature of work, training and education.

“With our students at the centre of everything we do, our strategy will ensure our graduates are well equipped to meet the rapidly changing nature of work and industry,” Ms Taylor said.

The Victorian TAFE landscape is changing as major reforms are under way in the VET sector. GOTAFE’s Education Strategy is designed to deliver contemporary education and training that is both accessible and equitable for regional students.

GOTAFE chief executive Travis Heeney said he was excited to release the education strategy.

“ As the largest vocational education provider in northern Victoria, GOTAFE plays a critical role in supporting employment and growth in our region and strengthening the local communities in which we operate,” he said.

“The GOTAFE 2020-2023 Education Strategy is a strategic cornerstone on which we all, as a collective GOTAFE community, will work together to achieve our vision.”
