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

Monica Summers says: It’s not only about funding TAFE correctly. It’s about supporting teachers do they can do their job properly, and providing sufficient administrative support for teaching sections. Teachers are the greatest resource in TAFE, and that is being forgotten in an organisation top heavy with managerial staff from financial, legal, auditing and business backgrounds.
Daniel McHugh says: For too long Tafe NSW has been poorly neglected. On a campus I teach at 60% of the classrooms air conditioners do not operate. No wonder Liberals are so proud of a budget surplus, because they don't spend it where its needed. So many of my colleagues have been sqeezed out of Tafe. In fact over 3000 staff. That is disgraceful. What impact has this had on the overall economy. I am so tired of managers in any organisation being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars and even million s of dollars and their first fix is job cuts. I am really over the mis-management of politicians and TAFE managers. The 2 majors parties will not get my vote. You will be micro managed by an independent as far as I am concerned.

Katerina Rubbo says: Unprecedented cuts of budget for TAFE system left teachers without jobs and students unable to continue to study due to financial pressures. TAFE system should be subsidized by the Government to help young people to get on their feet and migrants to study English to fit in the society.

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.

TVET, capabilities and social justice

TVET, capabilities and social justice

TVET institutions are institutions and not providers. There is a big difference between the two. The notion of a provider implies one among many, and it doesn’t much matter if it is this or that provider which is providing the ‘service’. Providers come and go, and wax and wane in response to market demand.

There are many pathways to university study, but Sue Leech’s story is different to most -she started her academic life behind bars. "Going into prison you feel like your life is over." Leech told this year’s AEU Federal Conference. "You feel like you have no future and there is nothing you can do to change course."
