HISTORY OF TAFE MANAGERS ASSOCIATION
The NSW TAFE Principals Association was formed. It was affiliated with the Australian Association of TAFE Principals during the 1980s.
The Australian Association of TAFE Principals changed its name to AUSTAFE to provide a stronger focus on developing TAFE and TAFE management matters
The NSW Association changed its name and became incorporated to TAFE NSW Managers Association. This reflected devolution of responsibility from a strong central structure to TAFE NSW Institutes. The TAFE NSW Managers Association became a Chapter of AUSTAFE reinforcing strong national links.
TMA has responded to a wide range of issues in the last few decades including:
- Performance development and accountabilities
- National Training Reform Agenda
- Partnerships with industries
- Higher Education
