National TAFE Day - Tuesday 6 September!
Every year, National TAFE Day provides the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the public TAFE system as a highly regarded educational institution which has supported and provided opportunities for individuals, communities and employers for decades.
It’s also a time to demand that the Federal Government ensure that TAFE is properly funded.
With hundreds of campuses all around the country, TAFE continues to provide high quality vocational education, and is perfectly positioned to help Australia rebuild, stimulate the economy and address skill shortages. But it urgently needs guaranteed funding to do so. After nine years of Coalition government neglect, the new Federal Labor Government can #RebuildWithTAFE.
That’s why we need you to take action to #RebuildWithTAFE and tell the new Federal Labor Government that the October Federal budget must deliver a minimum of 70% of total government VET funding to TAFE.
There are a number of things you can do to take action as part of this important day.
