A message from the CEO

One of the major issues facing Australia at the present time and in the immediate future is the lack of skilled people to fill vacancies in the workforce. Preparing people of all ages for the workforce is very much the role of TAFE Institutes. Sunraysia Institute of TAFE is able to provide a wide range of courses to help prospective students become work ready because we are the largest provider of vocational education and training in the north-west of Victoria.

At SuniTAFE we offer a cross section of courses that are recognised as growth areas in the region that the Institute serves – that is from Mildura to Ouyen, Swan Hill and Robinvale. Some of the courses that we offer in areas of skills shortages are in horticulture, conservation and land management, irrigation, business, transport and distribution, health and community services, commercial cookery and hospitality, building and construction, engineering, automotive and other trades. The Institute also specialises in multimedia, visual arts and language and literacy training.

TAFE is a great pathway into study for people of all ages – from school leavers to those who have been in the workforce for some years and would like to upgrade their qualifications or to begin a new career. Statistics show that most people now have several careers during their lifetime and it is not unusual to completely change direction. Many TAFE courses can lead on to University programs and with the pathways that the Institute has with its University partners there are options for students to continue their studies with credits into a relevant program.

Please contact us if you would like further information about courses or business services. You can email via the contact details on the website, visit the Customer Service Centre or ring and speak to a staff member in your area of interest.

Thank you for your interest in the Sunraysia Institute of TAFE.
