Sonu says: My dad did his Diploma and fees was under $400, now we pay in thousands for the same course but less hours/week and less by atleast two semesters . The worst is no pre-requisite for any of current courses that leads the teachers deal with enormous pressure. Education is for country’s future... don’t cut corners and make money out of us.. If you follow current tend you are planning for generation of morons... downfall for the country.
Chris Loch says: Vocational education is vital for many low socio-economic students. Give them a trade, and they stand a shot at full-time employment over their life. They might even decide to do Uni if that is their want. But to hobble TAFE makes it much harder to transition into work.

Helen Magnussen says: When you no longer offer courses to students/communities who are unable to be assessed is a sad day in our history because it’s about the bottom line. TAFE used to be about so much more than just giving job skills. Funding cuts have torn the heart out of this institution.

Domingo Palazon says: Stop TAFE Cuts now. it's the best alternative to University. TAFE has had a lot more courses that are career relevant. Its the best-registered Training Organisation in Australia. all other Registered Training Organisations are not as good. Without TAFE there would be a lot of unemployment.

Sally Devenish says: Very difficult to maintain a high standard and focus on students needs and course outcomes when teaching hours and funding keep getting cut
Michael Weitenberg says: We need tradeskills and tradespeople not churn and low quality, zero outcome high cost worthless paper certificate providers
Melissa Baveas says: We need funding for students to get in vocational work. Private registered training organisations are rampantly breaking the rules and there has beena huge government crack down on RTOs with many being closed. Also in terms of statistics according to the Training Services most RTOs are meeting compliance standards even after being notified of breaches... Also I have been at an RTO that does Sham contracting and currently in process of getting my super money back. Not to mention the manager smokes in the RTO indoors with the students there and I contacted NSW Health and because she owns the building they just advised her not to do it... I also told ASQA and nothing was done..... THIS IS WHY WE NEED TAFE. In what tafe classroom would you have the director smoking? In what tafe would you have sham contracting? And underpaid youth who are being paid under the minimum wage? SAVE OUR TAFE.
