Management of risk of harm to students and staff
- TAFE NSW is required by law to ensure the health and safety of students, staff and visitors on our premises. In order to meet these legal obligations it is necessary for us to access and manage any known risk of violent behaviour. 
If you have a history of violence that may suggest that you could pose a current risk of any type to TAFE students, staff and/or visitors it is a condition of your enrolment to advise the Campus Manager, a TAFE Counsellor or your Head Teacher prior to attending your first class. For this purposes `violence` is not restricted to physical acts. It includes any behaviour that seriously interferes with the physical or psychological safety and wellbeing of others such as: 

  • actual violence to any person 
  • possession of or use of a weapon or any item with the intention to cause harm or injury to others 
  • threats of violence or intimidation of others 
  • suspension or expulsion from any school or educational institution for violent aggressive behaviour.

TAFE NSW is committed to offering vocational education and training to the entire community. Following your advice of a potential risk, we will carry out an assessment of the current risk and, if necessary, provide support and a management plan. 
Only in exceptional circumstances will a risk assessment lead to exclusion from enrolment. It is our aim to provide an appropriate, safe environment to suit every students need and maximise your success in your studies.
