Revitalising TAFE Campuses Across Australia Initiative

For: 

The Government will provide $50 million over two years from 2020-21 to establish the Revitalising TAFE Campuses Across Australia program, in partnership with state and territory governments. This initiative aims to improve vocational education infrastructure ensuring TAFEs are equipped to deliver training to the standards expected by industry and students.

In recognition of the valuable role that TAFEs provide in supporting people to skill, reskill or upskill, the Government will invest $50 million to assist state and territory governments to revitalise their TAFE campuses over the next two years.

Funding will be contingent on matched contributions by state and territory governments, resulting in total funding commitment of at least $100 million for this new initiative.

The initiative aims to support small infrastructure projects such as building and construction works to expand, upgrade or refurbish TAFE facilities and buildings, purchasing or upgrading specialist-training equipment, and investing in technological infrastructure.

Proposals will be sought from state and territory governments over the coming months for funding to support projects in 2020–21 and 2021–22.
