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.

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.
