February 15th 2016
Membership subscriptions for 2016 are due to be paid by March each year.
The attached document provides you with details on how to pay your subscription.
We encourage all members to encourage peers from all sectors of your organisation to consider becoming members of AUSTAFE.
The AUSTAFE subscription includes membership of your State or Territory Association/Chapter.
Being a member of AUSTAFE provides an opportunity to access:
• An Australia wide network of TAFE professionals
• An annual Conference
• An Educational Leadership Award
• An Emerging Leader Award
• The TAFE Directors regular newsletter
• State and Territory Association/Chapter events
Why would TAFE/VET staff want to join AUSTAFE?
For most TAFE/VET staff around Australia the day-to-day reality is one of;
- Financial belt tightening,
- Increased regulation,
- Greater administrative expectations interfering with delivery obligation and
- Less support and equipping of staff to deal with the constant change
AUSTAFE offers its members the cheapest and perhaps most effective PD opportunity by facilitating ‘Networking’ with TAFE peers across State and Territory borders.
The value of sharing with people that have shared your experience, that have faced the same or similar difficulties and challenges or that have developed strategies and solutions, cannot be underestimated.
Join AUSTAFE today, for just $150. And enter a professional association that is not restrained by borders.
