TAFE Commission Board NSW gets seven new members

Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee has welcomed a new chairman  and members to the keystone advisory body that helps guide the direction of TAFE NSW.

Seven new members have been appointed to the TAFE Commission Board, an advisory body that reviews and makes recommendations to the Minister on TAFE NSW services, priorities, and operations.

“TAFE NSW is continually evolving to meet the needs of industry and students, so a board with wide-ranging experience and expertise is critical in guiding the organisation,” Mr Lee said.

“The new board is built from incredibly diverse backgrounds, reflecting the diversity of those who study and work at TAFE NSW.

“With more than 130 campuses, thousands of staff, and hundreds of thousands of students, I wanted to ensure TAFE NSW would benefit from advisors who represent the many groups we service, and I’m confident this new board will do that.”
