About us

We provide specialised services in TAFE NSW to offer educational pathways to jobs or further study for Aboriginal people. We also provide customised services for business.

We are committed to providing opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to learn together in a culturally safe environment, building on shared lived experience and cultural values. We recognise the importance of offering customised study options that address historical disadvantage and barriers to education for our mob.

Aboriginal Pathways offers a range of flexible programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as a step towards employment opportunities or moving forward in a career. These programs are delivered through residential study blocks with travel, accommodation and meals provided as part of the program. We work with the requirements of state and national funding bodies in relation to defining eligibility for our programs. Many of our students who live or work throughout NSW are eligible for subsidised training places under Smart and Skilled and a full fee exemption.
