Forgotten but not gone

TAFE Directors Australia warns that 100 000 students, displaced by the VET FEE HELP disaster, have not received support. “Our experience in helping students has shown that the majority started their training course aspiring to change jobs and build their career; they were not simply chasing a fee iPad,” TDA states.

Its budget submission TDA calls on the government “to support displaced students … who through no fault of their own, are not covered legislatively for tuition assistance but still have a debt but no results.”

CMM does not like TDA’s chances but the victims of a spectacular public policy failure should not be forgotten.
