Now, more than ever, Australians need TAFE – our strong, trusted and public vocational education system.


TAFE belongs to all of us. Millions of us got our first start or changed the course of our lives thanks to TAFE.


But TAFE is under attack.


Successive federal governments have abandoned TAFE, leaving it to compete in an unfair private market, slashing funding to its lowest level since 2008 and leaving state governments to pick up the cost. Today access to TAFE depends on where you live. 


This denies Australians access to public vocational education and undermines Australia’s efforts to rebuild a positive future in response to the pandemic.


Add your voice and tell the government to Rebuild with TAFE and invest in a positive future for all of us.

Why should we invest in TAFE?

TAFE leads to many opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and really does change your life.

— Soliel White, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the year 2018

The opportunities TAFE has afforded me have been beyond my wildest dreams.

— Michael Edwards, Australian Apprentice of the Year 2018

A strong and vibrant TAFE sector must be a vital part of Australia's VET response to the economic challenges we face, particularly in a post COVID-19 environment.

— Maxine Sharkey, AEU Federal TAFE Secretary
