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.

Since the launch of our TAFE NSW Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan in 2020 we have grown as an organisation, implemented strategies that have empowered Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and strengthened our relationships with communities.

Consultation is underway for the development of TAFE NSW next Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan 2023 - 2025.

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

Following on from our first Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan which was endorsed by Reconciliation Australia in November 2020, TAFE NSW is committed to the next iteration of our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.

TAFE NSW recognises we are still at the early stages of our reconciliation journey, and in consultation with our Aboriginal Community Reference Groups in each of our delivery regions, we are forging important relationships with community partners and Aboriginal peak bodies.

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.
