Rosemary Leclercq says: Gough Whitlam ABOLISHED TAFE fees in the 1970's. The increase in TAFE enrolments over the 2 year period 1973-1975 was 59%. If he could abolish fees then, surely we can afford it now! Secondary education is free but not all students are suited to the academic pathway. Australia has a tradie shortage so we should be INJECTING funds into TAFE!

Rebecca Williams says: Facilities at some TAFE’s are absolutely rundown and over 20years old. I’ve trained many times at TAFE and 100% support anyone needing to add to their skill set easily. TAFE is one of THEE most recognisable training organisations amount employers thus putting more confidence into future employment of TAFE students. Everyone deserves a fair go at education of ALL ages and learning levels and anyone attending TAFE online or on campus deserve to have the great training, great surroundings and facilities, and great funding for low income earners. Not everyone wants a Uni debt or Uni education. TAFE has successfully helped me get into 3 different industries and also helped many well known public figures into industries they successfully in now to this day....STOP TAFE CUTS!

Emma Preston says: First it was the public schools and now it's Tafe. You have to be a blind fool to think the Liberal party are working in your best interests. If the Liberal party had a favourite sport it would be kicking poor people while they're down. Liberal party is full of idiots who are so concerned with the future of their bank accounts then they are concerned about their own country and its people. Kick out the Liberals and stop Tafe cuts.
Natalie says: Stop TAFE Cuts Now!
Julie Irene Lindur says: TAFE was a sanity saver for me. I had to retire before I was ready and did a Course online and then a further course and now I teach English to refugees. The staff were professional and assisted me 100 per cent.

Tung Hoang says: Stop TAFE Cuts!
Elizabeth Harrison says: I am deeply concerned about the cuts to tafe funding in recent years-making access to tafe courses very difficult for those students wishing to pursue a technical or apprenticeship path. and making it harder for those people to gain education in order for them to be employable in the area of their choosing . Thus making the gap between the "haves" and "have nots" greater

So much for “Competent Economic Management”

So much for “Competent Economic Management”

Australia has been through another hard-fought federal election, in which public debate focused predictably on which party are the “best economic managers.”

We can't afford to give up on TAFE

We can't afford to give up on TAFE

Like many members, I had high hopes on Election Day as I handed out how to vote cards in my electorate, believing that this election was the best shot we had at restoring TAFE to its former glory.

What can TAFE expect from the Federal Government?

What can TAFE expect from the Federal Government?

The Morrison Government was silent on its policy for TAFE during the election campaign and there was no mention of TAFE in the Federal Budget revealed just prior to the election. Jonathan Guy, AEU Strategic Research Officer looks at the future for TAFE under a Morrison Government in the light of the Joyce Review.
