TO: Premier Denis Napthine:
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Premier his government's savage cuts to TAFE and the ongoing impact these cuts are having on TAFEs and students around Victoria. In particular, we note:
- Course fees have skyrocketed putting skills training out of reach for many hardworking Victorians.
- Many courses have been dropped or scaled back, and several TAFE campuses have closed.
- With Victoria in recession, manufacturing industries in crisis and jobs being lost every day, skills training has never been more important for Victorians.
The petitioners therefore request that the Premier restore TAFE funding, including fully funding TAFE institutes’ community service obligations.
