What is TAEN?

Established during 2015 to promote agricultural education in Tasmanian schools, the Tasmanian Agricultural Education Network (TAEN) has
transitioned into an association affiliated with the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE). Membership of the TAEN is not only for educators, but also individuals and groups interested in promoting high- quality agricultural education.
