Labor’s TAFE agenda in Queensland

12 February 2015

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

With the Labor Party poised to form a minority government in Queensland, its  promise to rescue the TAFE sector will now come into sharper focus.  Queensland VET student numbers fell 38,000 in 2013.

During the election campaign, Labor leader and soon to be premier Annastacia Palaszczuk  (who Annastacia3pronounces her surname as “Pallashay”) made a number of commitments to address the vocational educational and training system, including:

  • $34 million over three years to create up to 100 TAFE teaching and support positions, fund new training schemes in emerging industries, invest in student support services and subsidise foundation skills course for disadvantaged learners.
  • $240 million over four years to fund industry and community-based organisations to deliver training schemes to 32,000 people.
  • Ensure 10% of workers on major projects are apprentices and trainees and extend the requirement to government-owned corporations.
