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
Place: Ultimo Community Centre, 40 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.
