The Open Training and Education Network (OTEN) in Sydney is the specialist distance education and open learning institute of TAFE NSW (Australia's largest vocational education and training provider).

OTEN is part of the NSW Department of Education and Training. As part of TAFE NSW - Western Sydney Institute, OTEN is the largest provider of distance education and flexibly-delivered programs in Australia.

Students may enrol from anywhere in New South Wales, Australia. It offers world-class distance education services and products and enrols more than 37,000 students in over 250 TAFE NSW courses. Most courses give graduates nationally recognised qualifications through the AQF (Australian Qualifications Framework). Other specific-purpose courses are recognised by all of TAFE NSW.

OTEN courses are delivered using a range of media, including printed materials, videos, CD-ROMs, DVDs and the internet. OTEN students may also access local TAFE NSW library facilities.
