Bendigo TAFE is a regional provider of vocational education, training and assessment services, located in northern and central Victoria, Australia. The Institute has been in operation in various guises since 1854. The institute was known as the Loddon Campaspe Institute of TAFE from 1987 to 1990, Bendigo Regional Institute of TAFE (BRIT) from 1990 to 2009, before becoming Bendigo TAFE in 2009.[1]

Bendigo TAFE services a significant geographical area of approximately 25,000 square kilometres in central and northern Victoria, with a residential population of 220,000.[1]

In May 2014, Bendigo TAFE announced that it would merge with the Melbourne-based Kangan Institute to form the Bendigo Kangan Institute, however both institutes will retain their existing branding.[2]
