Save TAFE public forum

Please join me at our public forum and learn how to help save TAFE in NSW.

I'll be joining Greens TAFE spokesperson, Dawn Walker and Maxine Sharkey from the NSW Teachers Federation to discuss the latest issues confronting our TAFE system and to find out more about the campaign against the ongoing privatisation of vocational education.

Here are the details:

Date: 21st September

Time: 6-7.30pm

Place: Ultimo Community Centre40 William Henry St, Ultimo

TAFE has been the backbone of vocational education and training in NSW for more than a century and helped create a strong and prosperous NSW.

Since the Liberals gained power in NSW, the State Government has slashed funds to education and training by $1.7 billion, closed TAFE campuses and re-directed public funds into private vocational colleges, many with track records of rorting, poor teaching standards and low graduation rates.

The Greens want a well-funded, publicly-owned TAFE system that will provide opportunities and skills for Australians into the future. 

Hope to see you there.

    As a TAFE student for the past 2 years, I can personally say the TAFE system is in a downward spiral, and the many excellent TAFE teachers are wringing their hands in despair, & looking for a parachute. Student numbers have dropped due to enormous fee increases, and classes and courses are now in jeopardy due to low numbers. Shame on the Liberal government for systematically dismantling a once excellent and affordable teaching institution.
