Monday June 3 was National TAFE Day. This was an opportunity to pay tribute to the outstanding role of TAFE Institutes across Australia.
Whether we went to TAFE ourselves, or rely on the skills and expertise of someone who did, we are all beneficiaries of TAFE.
In the past year, governments have put this public education sector at risk by making savage cuts, in NSW, Victoria and Queensland.
A federal parliamentary inquiry into TAFE has been established, with hundreds of submissions already received, and hearings planned in the coming weeks.
