About TADA

The idea of a uniquely West Australian training and development association originated within the School of Education, Edith Cowan University in 1998. The idea gained momentum in mid 1999 when a group of Edith Cowan University 'Training and Development' graduates, formed TADA as a way of maintaining friendships and furthering their professional development.

At a Christmas function that year the group launched TADA to a crowd of enthusiastic practitioners. The mood of that night started an exciting beginning and journey for TADA.
