Senate inquiry urges change to TAFE funding

Senate Report      |    May 2014

The Senate Education and Employment References Committee inquiry into TAFE has recommended a new funding formula forTAFE to reflect the actual cost of service delivery, and a reversal of funding cuts by the states.The report says that while the committee is not opposed to the introduction of private training providers, it is “very concerned to hear accounts of where private providers are flooding the system at the expense of quality and consistency.”

A dissenting report by Coalition Senators says there is a huge amount of funding invested through TAFE, and government has a responsibility to ensure that it gets the best value for every dollar it spends.
