A roadmap for success in TAFE

Project Scope

With a rich history that goes back over 130 years, The Gordon Institute of TAFE (The Gordon), is a highly regarded training institution that aims to transform lives, businesses and communities through learning. The TAFE sector has a pivotal role to play in driving economic growth and ensuring people have the technical and social skills required to fulfil their vocational ambitions and meet the needs of employers.

TAFEs are currently navigating a host of challenges including amended funding models, a competitive marketplace, new policy settings and a changing economy. This means that market conditions are challenging and will remain unsettled for a number of years. Foresight Lane was engaged by The Gordon to work with them in establishing a strategy that would extend impact and position the organisation for ongoing success.

Foresight Lane has supported The Gordon to develop a strategy that is responsive to the current context and articulates a bold vision for how the organisation will serve the emerging and future needs of learners, the community and industry. The Gordon performs strongly across a range of industry indicators and the strategy enables The Gordon to build on existing strengths and core capabilities. At the same time the strategy sets out a roadmap for establishing the mechanisms and activities by which The Gordon will extend impact and introduce new business offerings.
