Help save funding for TAFE, skills and apprenticeships


If you are serious about jobs you don’t cut money from TAFE and give $17 billion to the big banks.

But that’s exactly what Morrison has done – cutting more than $3 billion from TAFE, apprenticeships and vocational education – including $270 million in last year’s budget.

Since the Liberals came to government, Australia has lost 140,000 apprenticeship places nationwide.

Labor will guarantee TAFE funding to give kids the opportunity to learn a trade and help older workers to re-skill.

We will waive the upfront fees for 100,000 TAFE students, and make one in ten employees on priority government infrastructure projects an apprentice.

And Labor will crack down on the abuse of 457 visas by requiring jobs to be advertised in Australia for local workers first.

It’s up to us to spread the word, so sign the petition and help us to fight for TAFE.
