Five TAFE delegates including Regional Manager, Kate Baxter, recently undertook an educational journey to India to learn new, innovative methods of improving learning opportunities for Indigenous students.

The eight-day learning-journey involved collaborating with the Centurion University of Technology, management staff, politicians and of course learning from the University students themselves.

Mrs Baxter expressed that the TAFE team felt the journey was extremely beneficial and that "these trips have laid the platform for more life-changing opportunities for our students and staff in the future, while also helping us learn important ways to improve indigenous learning outcomes".

The Indian educational system was an excellent learning curve for all at TAFE, with Mrs Baxter expressing their utmost enjoyment of "immersing [themselves] into the Indian culture".

The trip was a return visit after five Indian delegates visited TAFE Western in December 2016. Kate Baxter was joined by fellow colleagues Matt White, Tracy Goodwin, Connie Ah See and Rod Towney.
