Our Institute

At South West TAFE our primary aim is to provide our students with world class training and the very latest skills.

From our beginnings in the 1800s, South West TAFE has grown to become the largest and best regarded provider of skills training in south-west Victoria.

At South West TAFE we go a step further than other training providers. To ensure that the skills training we provide is for in-demand jobs, we actively develop training programs to help address regional skills shortages. As a result, graduates have a very high chance of finding employment and excelling in their chosen field.

We offer a wide range of accredited qualifications, plus short courses and stand-alone units from industry training packages. In addition there are pre-apprenticeship, apprenticeship, traineeship, vocational and graduate studies, industry certificates and TAFE in Schools programs.

Study modes are also flexible, and include on campus, off campus, on site and online learning.

Our teachers, training facilities, support services and direct links with industry are second to none, enabling our students to gain the insights and practical skills that their career and personal goals rely on.

We are also active in the community, providing supported education to students with special needs. Our youth programs offer young people the chance to reconnect and engage. Campuses are located in Warrnambool, Portland, and Hamilton, with facilities and services set to expand as the region grows.
