Taxes up 20%, but Daniel Andrews cuts $45m from training
Victorians are now paying for ten new taxes under Daniel Andrews, but the funds won’t be used to fix the state’s broken training sector.
By Portal Admin - 10th May 2017 - Back to NewsInstead, Labor has cut $45 million from the state’s training budget, while thousands of young people drop out of vocational education in Victoria.
Under Daniel Andrews, there are now:
122,597 fewer students enrolled in government-subsidised training
168,432 fewer government-subsidised course enrolments
56 million fewer student contact hours delivered
The participation of young people in training has also declined by 6.6 per cent.
Labor is so desperate to hide its failed TAFE 'rescue', that it plans to stop publishing training enrolment numbers and other key performance measures (Budget Paper No. 3, Output Performance Measures for Review, p363).
Daniel Andrews’ cuts to training are hurting young people who want to work towards a new career and the most vulnerable in our society.
