Corp - Reconciliation RAP - Intro

The TAFE NSW vision for reconciliation is an Australia that recognises and acknowledges the injustices of the past, respects cultural diversity, advocates for self-determination, and is free of all forms of racism. It is an Australia that promotes equality, equity, and cultural safety in education, training and employment opportunities.

What is the purpose of the TAFE NSW RAP?

The TAFE NSW Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) engages employees and stakeholders in reconciliation and develops strategies to create a culturally safe environment that supports self-determination and economic independence for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

TAFE NSW’s Commitment to Reconciliation

TAFE NSW aims to be the employer and training provider of choice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples through promoting equality, equity and cultural safety in education, training, and employment opportunities.

Our Reconciliation Action Plan is an ongoing project that:

  • Commits to real and actionable initiatives
  • Responds to change and growth
  • Develops and strengthens relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • Engages staff and stakeholders in reconciliation
  • Develops and pilots innovative strategies to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander peoples

Our continuing journey

After more than 12 months work by a dedicated group of employees and local community members, our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan was endorsed by Reconciliation Australia in November 2020.

Ongoing consultation

TAFE NSW recognises we are still at the early stages of our reconciliation journey, and we look forward to establishing our Aboriginal Community Reference Groups in each of our delivery regions, and forging the important relationships with community partners and Aboriginal peak bodies as our plan unfolds. It is important for TAFE NSW to have an Aboriginal voice in our organisation, and we hope to achieve this by the Aboriginal Governance structure we have in place.
