Stop TAFE Cuts: Make a Submission and Register your Support

After over $500 million in budget cuts to Australian TAFEs last year, the federal government announced a Federal Parliamentary Inquiry into the role of TAFE last Friday. The inquiry will be the first of its kind since the 1970s. "All the big changes since then have been done to TAFE without public discussion," says the University of Melbourne's Leesa Wheelahan. 

There are just four weeks to make a submission, so the Australian Education Union has launched the new website Stop TAFE Cuts as a platform to register your support and make a submission before Thursday 18 April. It takes 30 seconds to register your support, and there are links on the site to become more involved if you're keen to do more.
