TAFE Funding and the Education Targets
Long, Michael
Centre for the Economics of Education and Training, Monash University
The Australian Education Union (AEU) commissioned the Monash University-ACER Centre for the Economics of Education and Training (CEET) to review funding and staffing for VET (vocational education and training), and especially for TAFE (technical and further education), in the context of the recently set COAG (Council of Australian Governments) targets for educational attainment. The paper is motivated by the apparent increase in VET provision implied by government educational attainment targets in the context of stable or declining funding for VET and the conclusion that funding needs to increase if the targets are to be met. The topics canvassed include: (1) The decline in funding levels for public VET; (2) The government targets for increased levels of educational attainment in the population and the workforce; (3) Increased demand for the different types of educational qualifications; and (4) The implications for future funding for VET. (Contains 11 tables, 1 figure and 20 footnotes.) [This paper was prepared for The Australian Education Union.]
