TAFE, it’s Labor for training

Labor education shadow minister Tanya Plibersek has again ruled out an end to demand driven funding. When asked about a cap on student places on ABC TV yesterday Ms Plibersek said; “we we absolutely shouldn’t do that. We know that the jobs of the future are going to require a post-secondary school education. … We support the uncapping of undergraduate degree places, although we have to do that with improvements in TAFE as well because we don’t want to see a shift from TAFE to universities, we want both sectors to be strong.” Does Ms Plibersek mean training, as including private providers when she talks of TAFE, or does she mean TAFE as in, well TAFE.
