Victorian Greens TAFE & Training spokesperson and former TAFE student Sam Hibbins MP, has spoken out on 'National TAFE Day'  in support of TAFE.

“As a former TAFE student I understand the importance of quality, affordable, local TAFE."

 “Our TAFEs are in crisis yet Labor, Liberal and the Nationals remain wedded to the failed marketisation policy that has seen public funds flow away from our quality public TAFEs to for-profit training providers.”

“Fees are up, quality of training is down, jobs have been lost, campuses closed.”

“The solution is to abandon this failed VET marketisation policy and to put TAFE first when allocating Vocational Education & Training (VET) funding.”

“The state government must restore TAFE to the primary provider of VET in Victoria” Mr Hibbins said.

 

Note: Sam Hibbins completed a Diploma of Liberal Arts at Frankston TAFE (Chisholm Institute) in 2003
