This paper discusses the Kangan report’s vision, its context and the emergence of TAFE. It outlines the effects of the Kangan report (indexed at TD/LMR 85.637) and some reflections from Myer Kangan himself, provided in a speech given seven years after the report. The author gives his view of the legacy of Kangan, including the granting of a new respectability to TAFE and funding for modern colleges, library resources, counselling services, curriculum development and staff development programs.

The volume from which this chapter is taken is indexed at TD/TNC 39.16.
