Union in the policy tent

Former NTEU president to lead SA TAFE review

For a start, newly re-elected national president Alison Barnes was invited to the National Skills Summit – not bad at all for a union with 26 500 members, (the school based Australian Education Union has 185 000).

The NTEU is also on a working group appointed by Education Minister Jason Clare to advise on extending post study work rights for international students with in-demand skills.

And now Dr Barnes’ predecessor, the union’s immediate past president Jeannie Rea (Victoria U)  is commissioned by the SA Government to review the state’s TAFE system.
