The survey has been online since early May and has received in excess of 3600 responses so far. Some interesting statistics from the survey have surfaced such as:

  • 38.25% of respondents are over 50
  • 65.76% of respondents are female
  • 11.15% of respondents have a disability that affects work and/or study options
  • Over 45% of respondents have completed a tertiary qualification
  • At 42.36% Business Administration, Information Communications & Technology are the most studied fields
  • 64.52% of respondents indicate that the main purpose for their study was as a pathway for employment, whereas 18.89% indicate that their main purpose was as a pathway for further education.

The survey asks respondents to rate how they feel a TAFE qualification is valued in the workplace, the quality of the teaching at TAFE, and their satisfaction with TAFE resources. Results indicate an average of 80% or above satisfaction rating for all three questions.

The survey closes on 31 July 2014.
