TAFE Directors Australia (TDA) enjoys membership from publicly owned TAFE institutes and university TAFE divisions across all Australian states and territories, and the Australia-Pacific Technical College. TDA is the peak body representing the TAFE sector on all issues relating to Australia’s vocational education and training sector, higher education sector and for the TAFE sector’s international engagement.

TDA also welcomes associate membership from quality education or training providers that have a long-established reputation in the tertiary sector, as many issues of concern to TAFEs impact the wider tertiary sector.

TDA provides members with a range of benefits, including:

  • A forum for cooperation and exchange
  • A mechanism to support effective national input into policy formulation
  • Opportunities for professional development in a peer setting
  • A mechanism to coordinate national representation of TAFE institutes on key committees and boards

There are three types of membership:

  • Full Membership with voting rights for Australian TAFE institutes and TAFE divisions of Australian public universities.
  • Associate Membership with non-voting rights for TAFE professional bodies and education and training sector organisations or institutions.
  • Individual Membership open to former TAFE directors and retired senior TAFE executives, and eminent VET sector individuals.
