National TAFE Day will be celebrated this year on Thursday 13th August! Every year, National TAFE Day provides us with an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our public TAFE system and to remind politicians that investing in TAFE is vital for Australia’s economic recovery.
Times of crisis and increased stress or anxiety push many of us into autopilot. We keep working, we keep functioning, but our own wellbeing takes a back seat to our work and our students. Switch on to healthier living and take the Wellbeing Fitness Challenge with Mick Walsh, a former teacher, school leader and author of The Learning Curve.
