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 is recognising Refugee Week, by hosting an online event on 17 June. Please join Steffen Faurby, TAFE NSW Managing Director, and Vik Naidoo, Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer, for an update on the commitments we have made in the TAFE NSW Multicultural Plan. You can also hear from Joseph La Posta, the CEO of Multicultural NSW, and have the opportunity to experience some moving stories from TAFE NSW students with refugee backgrounds.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Date: Thursday, 17 June 2021
Time: 2 to 2:40 pm
Location: Online


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.

Progress report 2018-2020

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.

Highlights include:

  • Leveraging strong relationships with a broad range of community and government organisations which enable us to identify and address community needs.
  • Continuing long-standing programs and services that play a fundamental role in supporting communities.
  • Focusing on ongoing development of targeted tailored courses in response to community needs.
