Invest in Quality, Invest in TAFE27-09-2011
Only TAFE can deliver the quality training and education Australians need.
But for too long TAFEs across the nation have been forced to do more with less.
Research shows funding has been cut and TAFEs are being forced to turn away thousands of students as a result.
On top of this, the Federal Government has opened the VET sector up to contestible funding, giving private RTOs a chance to deliver courses with government funding.
The evidence from Victoria is already showing that TAFE is losing market share. This has to change.
