Albanese silent on universities

The bad news for higher education is there is no news in Anthony Albanese big-picture leader’s speech

The Opposition Leader’s first big policy speech included an AI excellence centre and “a national project to repair our VET system,” plus national workforce planning.

But take no heart private providers, when Mr Albanese says VET, he mainly means TAFE, which “is the cornerstone of the Australian training system. It can be complemented, but never replaced.”

And accept the wreck of hopes HE people, universities are not mentioned at all.
