Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
Sunraysia College of Technical and Further Education was established in 1979. It was the first purpose-designed and built TAFE college in Victoria. The TAFE was designed to provide a teaching program which would meet the needs of the community and industry, as well as providing training access to those livng in remote regional areas of north-west Victoria. It was also established with a tri-state focus due to its unique location near the border of Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia.

It was renamed to Sunraysia Institute of Technical and Further Education on 2 October 1995 (Victoria Government Gazette, No. S 77, Friday 4 August 1995).

To reflect the industry base of the region, main areas of study include agriculture, horticulture, building, construction and associated trades, light and heavy automotive, community health, welfare, business and retail and hospitality services. Later education stream focuses include future trades, the expansion of traditional trades, health and social assistance industries and sustainability qualifications.

Sunraysia Institute of TAFE has two main campuses at Mildura and Swan Hill; two rural campuses at Robinvale and Ouyen; and a training farm at Cardross, near Mildura.

The main Mildura campus partnered with La Trobe University and the Murray Darling Freshwater Research Centre, hosted the Sunraysia branch of University of The Third Age, the National Centre for Sustainability, the Sunraysia Branch of Men's Shed, and TAFE Kids (an incorporated childcare centre).
