Educational Partnerships and Collaboration

TAFE SA has been around since 1971 so we have lots of experience to share! That’s why we collaborate with vocational education institutions in Australia and overseas.

We can be your institution’s knowledge partner, helping to establish or improve your educational offering. We can help set up courses and advise on infrastructure needs. Your teachers can come and train here with us, or we can send our trainers to you. We can also licence our proven learning materials, including course outlines, PowerPoint presentations, study guides and assessments. Find out how a partnership with TAFE SA can help you.

TAFE SA and Redarc have enjoyed a solid relationship over many years with TAFE SA providing extensive training in electronic engineering for Redarc's workforce.

REDARC is a passionate innovator providing renewable energy systems for vehicle applications and developing the skills of young people in South Australia and the opportunity to become the major sponsor of the TAFE SA Solar Spirit car meets both of those goals.

Onshore Petroleum Centre of Excellence

TAFE SA partners with numerous clients within the oil and gas industry. At our Tonsley campus we simulate real life conditions to what operators and operator maintainers encounter on the job in a controlled environment at the Onshore Petroleum Centre of Excellence (OPCE).

Opened in February 2015, the OPCE was established through a partnership between TAFE SA and the state’s largest oil and gas producers. A one-of-a-kind facility, it provides a realistic simulation of upstream oil and gas operations, with training options ranging from oil and gas fundamentals to the up-skilling of experienced field operators. 

The OPCE provides a low hazard, interactive training environment utilising operational upstream field plant and equipment.

These specialist facilities benefit both new and existing oil and gas industry employees to further develop the skills required to succeed in a broad and complex industry.
