Conducting research in TAFE NSW – Application process

TAFE NSW welcomes high quality research that supports our strategic directions.

All research involving TAFE NSW students, customers and and/or staff must be approved by the Chief Education and Training Officer, TAFE NSW. Proposed projects must meet all policy, procedural and ethical requirements of working with TAFE NSW students and staff as detailed in the Guidelines for applications to conduct research in TAFE NSW.

The Guidelines apply to applications for research within TAFE NSW to be carried out by researchers external to TAFE NSW or by TAFE NSW staff. All research should contribute to the achievement of the State’s strategic directions, Premier’s Priorities and the current TAFE NSW Strategic Plan.

If researchers require access to aggregated regional or state level data, they must complete the research data request form (Form 3). Requests are reviewed by TAFE NSW on a case-by-case basis, and must be approved by the Chief Education and Training Officer, TAFE NSW.

When seeking approval to conduct research, researchers should submit the Application forms to conduct research in TAFE NSW to the TAFE NSW Education and Training Group Executive Services email address TAFEETGExecServices@tafensw.edu.au.
