Election 2022 - Stand up for TAFE


TAFE is too important to lose!

Past events

Greens MP education spokesperson, John Kaye

To secure TAFE's future, Mr Parker and Dr Kaye introduced the TAFE Changes Moratorium (Secure Future for Public Provision of Vocational Education and Training) Bill 2013 into the NSW Parliament:

After years of cost cutting, rising fees, privatised training and job losses, TAFE needs an urgent plan to safeguard its future. Member for Balmain Jamie Parker MP will host a public meeting to launch the Greens' plan to save TAFE, with a particular focus on local institutions Ultimo TAFE, Petersham TAFE and the Sydney Institute.  To secure TAFE's future, Mr Parker and Dr Kaye will introduce the TAFE Changes Moratorium (Secure Future for Public Provision of Vocational Education and Training) Bill 2013 into the NSW Parliament later this month that aims to: freeze funding to private providers at appropriate levels; reverse rising fees for students, and immediately stop the Liberal/National state government's aggressive Smart and Skilled market that will force TAFE into a race to the bottom with low cost, low quality private providers.
