Active and Healthy Travel

Try walking, cycling or getting public transport as a preference to car use. 

You will benefit by feeling healthier, happier and save money.

Additional benefits of 'active transport' include slowing down climate change, cleaner air and less congestion to name a few.

For better health- you'll love the feeling after - 

  • Walking part, or all the way
  • Cycling part, or all the way- park your bike in the lockers at the train station
  • You may find that you don't need to do any other exercise after daily walking or riding

For the environment

  • Try carpooling and sharing- Reduce congestion, do some networking while you are at it. See the websites- Western Sydney Carpool, or Jayride, or download carpooling and sharing  apps on your mobile phone. 
  • Take the train or the bus. It is often faster- The OPAL Card has eliminated the need for waiting for tickets. Mobile phone apps for public transport- HERE

OTEN Distance Education


study @ your own pace @ your own place

The Open Training and Education Network (OTEN) is part of TAFE NSW - Western Sydney Institute.

OTEN is the largest non-classroom (distance) education provider in Australia and a world leader in the use of cutting edge technologies and media in education.

While OTEN caters to many students, it effectively provides personal attention and support to all. It has developed sophisticated systems to manage large volumes of students. OTEN provides highly individualised, student centred education and training.

Our dedicated staff provide quality support, enabling students to develop necessary skills for their career and life goals. The flexible nature of our course delivery means that students can study at a time and place of their convenience.

We deliver TAFE NSW courses that give graduates nationally recognised qualifications through the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). These qualifications are highly valued by industry and the wider community in Australia and internationally.

We also work in partnership with small and large businesses, local community and government organisations both in Australia and overseas to design and deliver customised training programs (including gap training and training in the workplace).

As part of Western Sydney Institute, OTEN is committed to environmental sustainability. The Institute's commitment is outlined in its Environmental Sustainability Commitment Statement. This commitment guides all of the Institute's business activities.

OTEN is located in the Sydney suburb of Strathfield and is built on the territory of the Wangal clan of the Eora people, the traditional Indigenous owners of this part of Sydney.
