TAFE NSW Multicultural Plan 2020

TAFE NSW is committed to creating a workplace and educational space where the promotion of diversity and inclusion is valued. TAFE NSW has written a Multicultural Plan which aims to deliver on the objective “that people from culturally diverse communities achieve high degrees of social and economic participation.”

Refugee Week 2021

One of the ways we can promote diversity and inclusion, is to recognise the valuable contributions that all Australians make within our communities.

This year, TAFE NSW recognised Refugee Week, by hosting an online event on the 17th of June, 2021. Steffen Faurby, TAFE NSW Managing Director, and Vik Naidoo, Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer, provided an update on the commitments we have made in the TAFE NSW Multicultural Plan. Joseph La Posta, the CEO of Multicultural NSW also joined us and we heard from TAFE NSW students who provided their experiences and moving stories from a diverse range of refugee backgrounds.

Connecting your community to education, training and employment.

Cultural and Linguistic Diversity (CALD) coordinators at TAFE NSW work closely with different communities to address the needs of people from a CALD background. TAFE NSW supports members of the CALD community in overcoming barriers and helping them to gain the training they need to find employment. TAFE NSW aims to empower everyone along their educational and employment pathways. We achieve this by collaborating with various community providers to create programs that align with the specific needs of CALD groups.

Why do we need a Multicultural Plan?

Under the Multicultural NSW Act 2000, TAFE NSW has a legislative responsibility to submit a Multicultural Plan to Multicultural NSW.

What’s in the TAFE NSW Multicultural Plan?

The Plan contains 15 targets which were developed based on research and stakeholder consultation. These targets are designed to support the social and economic success for culturally and linguistically diverse students, employees, and communities.

We regularly report progress against our Multicultural Plans to Multicultural NSW. In 2020, we were pleased to share the work our dedicated employees delivered from 30 June 2018 to 1 July 2020 as part of the TAFE NSW Multicultural Plan 2016-17.
