About the Centre
The Centre, 1989 - Adult education - 17 pages
The Technical and Further Education (TAFE) National Centre for Research and Development is a national education research and development organization. The center was established in June 1980 as a company limited by guarantee, and its members are the ministers responsible for TAFE in all of Australia's states and territories and in the commonwealth. Fifty percent of the center's funding is provided by the commonwealth government; additional funding can be raised or earned (as from the sale of materials), and the center can apply for research grants. In recent years, the center has been especially successful in raising additional research funds and has formed an external consulting division. Managed by a board of no fewer than 11 but not more than 12 members, the center is involved in the following activities: conducting and commissioning research, publishing research reports and a journal for TAFE teachers and others in the field of technical and further education, developing workshops, holding conferences, running the National Technical and Further Education Clearinghouse, working closely with the Curriculum Projects Steering Group, sitting on advisory committees, and disseminating information through other organizations.
