Vic Labor Pledges More Free TAFE Courses
The Andrews Government have made further promises to their Free TAFE scheme, adding two new courses to the list and offering more funding to tertiary education in Victoria
The Victorian Labor Government has further emphasised their focus on improving the quality of TAFE education and training in the state by adding another two courses to the list of Free TAFE, bringing the total up to over 50 qualifications and apprenticeship programs for Victorians.
The two courses will help with future demand in early-childhood education and care, attracting more to this career path and easing pressures on kindergarten and child minding services. This comes after the earlier announcement of providing universal three-year-old kinder for Victorians.
Early this week, Premier Andrews stated that the move was essential in skilling future workforces: “We have already announced universal care for three-year-old kindergarteners, we need the workforce that will be skilled to meet that demand”
To help meet this demand, Premier Andrews also revealed 8000 University scholarships to assist with education aspiring kindergarten and early-childhood teachers.
What happens when you introduce universal three-year-old kinder? You need to train even more people to deliver it. That’s why a re-elected Labor Government will make another two early childhood TAFE courses completely FREE. #vicvotes #springst pic.twitter.com/5flMRBopPV— Daniel Andrews (@DanielAndrewsMP) November 21, 2018
Additionally came the announcement of further investment in TAFE and adult education centres, with Chisholm Institute in Frankston benefitting from a $67 million investment. In September, the Labor Government also announced over $220 million in funding towards TAFE facilities, including the Melbourne Polytechnic Institute in Collingwood.
