GC2018 Workforce Orientation Event

TAFE Queensland has kick-started the GC2018 Commonwealth Games journey for more than 15,000 of the Games volunteers and workforce. As the Training Partner for the Games, TAFE Queensland delivered an event that saw people travelling from as far as Germany to participate in the launch of the volunteer training journey at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre. TAFE Queensland staff and students played a critical role in delivering the launch event which saw the unveiling of the Workforce uniforms.

Known as the Games Shapers, the 15,000 strong volunteers were treated to an insight into the vital role they will play during Games time as the face of the Games.

Presenting Partner GC2018 Basketball

TAFE Queensland has been bringing local communities together for years just like basketball. Basketball is a source of civic pride and it’s a sport that we’re right behind. As Presenting Partner GC2018 Basketball, TAFE Queensland is proud to be part of the action, and as a state-wide organisation, help spread the excitement into every corner of Queensland through staff, student and community engagement. Every basketball player has a few tricks up their sleeve, but what they really have is skill as a result of their commitment to training – and that’s something we share more than 130 years of experience in.
