The Minister for Education, Training and Skills, the Hon Blair Boyer MP has announced the appointment of tertiary education expert and leader, Associate Professor Jeannie Rea, to lead a public conversation on the future of technical and further education (TAFE) in South Australia.  

Jeannie will be supported by an expert panel of vocational education, industry and union experts.

The expert panel, under Associate Professor Jeannie Rea’s leadership, will be tasked with engaging with students, staff, industry, the community and external experts to draft a roadmap for the future of TAFE SA for the next decade.

Members of the expert panel will include:
  • Joanne Denley, TAFE SA Board Chair
  • Peter Nolan, Ai Group
  • Anthony Kittel, REDARC Electronics
  • Rebecca Brookes, Australian Education Union
  • Madeline Richardson, Skills SA
  • Maria Peters, vocational education leader 
  • Andrea Broadfoot, Employment Facilitator - Local Jobs Program, North West Country SA 
This important conversation will help ensure the state’s public vocational education and training provision remains relevant and a critical part of the state’s solution to creating and sustaining a skilled workforce now and for future generations.   

We encourage you to provide input into the potential future for TAFE SA and look forward to your involvement in this important work.   

There will be a symposium hosted by the government and the Australian Education Union to consider the big questions around the future of TAFE SA as well as workshops with key stakeholders. The final report outlining recommendations will be delivered to the government by the end of April 2023.

Now is the time to define TAFE SA’s future for all South Australians.
