TAFE is one the cornerstones of the Australian Education system
In New South Wales, the O’Farrell and Baird Liberal Governments have sacked over 3,600 teachers, course costs have escalated and they have already flagged 27 TAFE campuses including Dapto, Murwillumbah, and Belmont as being considered for sale.
Since the election of the Abbott/Turnbull Governments, the Liberals have cut almost $2.5 billion from skills and training, including $1 billion from apprentice programs and the Tools for Your Tradeprogram. They have also axed great programs like the National Workforce Development Fund and language, literacy and numeracy programs.
TAFE has been, and should continue to be the primary point of delivery for skills education particularly in Regional NSW.
