Our public TAFE system is a central pillar for vocational, skills-based training across NSW. For more than a century, it has been central to equipping many workers with the skills needed to build a strong and prosperous NSW.
TAFE offers opportunities to everyone, no matter their background, and ensures that we have the skills we need for the future.
The Government is gutting our TAFE system. Systematic budget cuts and the ruthless privatisation agenda have pushed this once world-class system to the brink of collapse.
The Greens stand for:
- Restoring full public funding to our TAFE system
- Stopping tax-payer money flowing to for-profit, private providers
- Keeping TAFE campuses open, affordable and staffed with face-to-face educators
- Abolishing TAFE fees
