Biographical history

In 1976 the ACT Further Education Branch was established with responsibility for the Canberra Schools of Art and Music. The Schools were then formally established as part of the ACT technical and further education system, when previously the New South Wales Department of Technical Education had provided full-time teaching staff. The Branch became known as the Office of ACT Further Education by 1980. In 1987, the ACT Administration Central Office acquired the functions of TAFE Colleges, the Canberra School of Arts and Canberra School of Music from the Office of ACT Further Education.
