Since December 2014 the number of students enrolled in training in Victoria has dropped 45.3 per cent, from 443,687 to 243,000 in June 2016.

A glossy brand awareness campaign doesn’t repair two years of shambolic mismanagement of Victoria’s training sector.

The Andrews Government claimed it would ‘rescue’ TAFE, but ripped $165.3 million from student training in 2015 and cut course subsidies in critical skills shortage areas.

The crisis in Victoria’s training system will roll on for two more years if this is Labor’s best idea to repair the sector.

Victorian students are turning away from Labor’s crumbling training system in droves.

As Gayle Tierney is preoccupied with defending the Andrews Government’s weak bail laws and soft on crime approach, Victorian young people are finding it harder to up-skill or re-skill in a training system in chaos.
