"We see industry as partners. Our driving force is to support your workforce to develop relevant skills, build community capacity, enhance job growth and increase productivity."
Duncan Anderson, Managing Director South Regional TAFE
To be competitive and keep up with changes in the market, investing in the development of your people can give you the edge in business. By partnering with South Regional TAFE, we help you as an employer to develop your workforce so that your people stay relevant and up to date with the latest trends, skills and qualifications.
Understanding Your Needs
We do more than simply deliver training courses for your business. By gaining a deeper understanding of your business opportunities and challenges, we are able to achieve business solutions tailored to your specific needs. By adopting a partnership approach, we work alongside you to ensure training solutions meet your specific workforce development requirements.
We recognise businesses require a different solution to their training needs. Offering customised, flexible and responsive training, our staff will work with your company to create training that is meaningful and sustainable.
Working as your business partner, we provide a personalised approach across a range of areas, including:
- apprentices and trainees
- training needs analysis (TNA)
- customised training
- recognition of skills and experience your staff may already have through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
- identifying funding opportunities
- course development
- development of training materials and handbooks customised to your specific processes
- provide contract training staff
Special training programs can be developed in any field from forklift driving and roof tiling to business management and information technology.
We customise solutions to also suit the learning styles of students. Some learners cope better in an interactive environment while others adapt to online learning and others learn best on the job.
Training can be delivered flexibly as follows:
- on campus or at your worksite
- computer based on-line and simulator formats
- traditional classroom delivery
Our training can be adapted to suit your location.
Help with Funding
The Australian Federal and State Governments offer funding incentives for programs that provide training to address shortages and up-skill employees in the workplace. South Regional TAFE can not only assist you with access to the latest government funding initiatives, we can also assist with the application process.

Apprenticeships and Traineeships
No matter what industry you are in, apprentices and trainees provide real benefits to your business and contribute to your bottom line.
Because no two businesses are the same, apprenticeships and traineeships have been designed to be flexible, while at the same time providing nationally recognised training developed for the industry, by the industry.
Key benefits of employing apprentices or trainees in your business include:
- Staff are trained to your business requirements
- You can negotiate the timing, location and nature of the training, whether that is part-time, full-time or school-based, dependent upon your business needs
- Financial incentives are available
- A variety of qualification levels are possible in traditional trades as well as a diverse range of emerging careers in most sectors of business and industry
- Qualifications and competencies are nationally recognised
- Staff may do some, or all, training on-site and on-the-job
South Regional TAFE is committed to providing a quality service to its customers. The information contained in the Apprenticeship List was current at the time of publication.
We specialise in tailoring training to suit the needs of business and industry.

Construction Training Fund
The Construction Training Fund supports the training of people in the building and construction industries.
The organisation is offering new bonus subsidies of up to $2000 for the employment of mature-age (21 and over) and female apprentices.
In addition, supplementary skills and occupational safety and health subsidies have been extended to include:
- Training for licensing requirements in the electrical, plumbing and painting trades.
- Training in communications cabling.
In addition, the subsidy for courses of Certificate IV level and above will now be provided on completion of the individual unit, rather than on completion of the full qualification.
