FedUni TAFE offers a broad range of quality education and training programs that delivers skilled workers to industries including automotive, building and construction, manufacturing, engineering, business, IT, graphic design, food services, agriculture, nursing, hairdressing, beauty therapy, community and children’s services. 

Great career opportunities 

Trades and traditional ‘blue collar’ careers have fast become a lucrative career option – with many out-earning some of the professional ‘white collar’ qualifications once considered to be the big money makers (think doctors, management, lawyers, accountants). Becoming a master of your trade can open your future career opportunities to a level you never thought possible. 

Great teachers 

Our teachers have worked in industry, and understand what it takes to become a successful tradesperson or professional. They have been apprentices and know what it’s like to be starting out in the industry. 

Great facilities 

State-of-the-art trade training facilities include the Building and Construction Training Centre which houses our construction trades; fully operating commercial kitchens, hairdressing, and beauty salons; as well as the Rural Sciences Skills Centre – home to our Agriculture, Horticulture and Conservation & Land Management programs; and the new Manufacturing Engineering Skills Centre.

Great industry contacts 

As our teachers have industry experience and because FedUni has a long history in the trade training business, we have close ties with local industries and businesses. This results in a very high placement rate of apprentices and graduates with local companies. 

Great range of programs 

We offer a wide range of quality TAFE vocational education and training courses, with a focus on apprenticeship and skills training. We are also home to Federation College, offering a range of VET and preparatory courses for those looking for alternative options for completing their education. We offer Certificates, Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas. Which course you do will depend on your background, education level and interests. Each program in this guide lists its entry requirements and how to apply. Programs which are listed as Apprenticeships or Traineeships require that you are employed in the relevant industry and have a training agreement with your employer.
