TAFE NSW: Flexibility, Sustainability and Renewal. Companion Paper 8
Noonan, Peter; Burke, Gerald
Centre for the Economics of Education and Training, Monash University
Debates on skill shortages and the aging of the population have markedly increased the attention given to Vocational Education and Training (VET) and to Technical and Further Education (TAFE). New roles for VET include new products, pedagogy and partnerships with industry, all with implications for staff development. TAFE has particular responsibilities for equity including concern for those in casual employment, for those not in employment, for indigenous peoples and regional communities. There is a need for increased private and public funding, with a strong case to be made for a long term funding agreement between the Commonwealth and the states that gives public recognition to the important and growing needs of the sector. (Contains 1 footnote and 2 tables.)
