TAFE NSW operates through its ten individual Institutes. There are four metropolitan and six regional Institutes with a total of over 130 campuses across NSW.
Institutes are the key point of contact for our customers. Each Institute offers a broad range of courses and specialist services to meet the needs of its customers, industry partners and local community.
Institutes play a strategic role in meeting state and national education priorities for vocational education and training. Institutes have also developed a strong global reputation through the delivery of educational services internationally and supporting international students studying vocational and English language courses in Australia.
The ten Institute Directors are members of the TAFE NSW Executive Group which works collaboratively on key issues and joint activities. This collaborative approach ensures a strategic approach to engagement with our key customers and stakeholders, transparency in decision making and accountability and efficiencies in systems and business processes.
Each Institute has its own website which provides specific information about its range of courses and services.

Each TAFE NSW Institute has an Institute Advisory Council which provides input on community, business and customer needs and issues. They also offer direction for improving industry, community and student outcomes. Councils are made up of professionals drawn from a cross-section of industry and the community bringing a wide range of expertise and advice to each Institute.
Each TAFE NSW Institute produces an annual report and routinely conducts surveys and other benchmarking exercises to make sure that it is working to meet the expectations of community and industry in the local area.
