The Skills Institute is a totally transformed training provider that emerged from the separation of TAFE Tasmania in 2009 into two new training organisations:

  • TSI - an employer and industry aligned training provider focused on workforce skills development
  • The Tasmanian Polytechnic - providing student and career aligned vocational education.

The client group of the Skills Institute is employers and their employees. In providing workforce skills development services, the Skills Institute is supporting the productivity and success of client businesses.

The Skills Institute is a Tasmanian Government owned statutory authority governed by a board of directors.
