TAFE institutes are leading the way in developing innovative global partnerships with key multinational organisations to meet their skilling needs.

Australian TAFE’s involvement in the $20 million Chongqing VET Project involved up to 10 Australian TAFE institutes in working and mentoring Chinese counterparts in VET reform and governance. TAFE NSW developed the Workforce Training Master Plan for the highly successful World Expo 2010 Shanghai for the delivery of training to the entire workforce of 180,000 paid, volunteer and contractor staff. Previously, TAFE NSW provided the Workforce Master Training Plan for the outstanding 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and Paralympic Equestrian Events in Hong Kong, as well as workforce training for all staff involved with the 2004 Athens and 2000 Sydney Olympic and Paralympic Games.
