Every year, National TAFE Day provides the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the public TAFE system as a highly regarded educational institution which has supported and provided opportunities for individuals, communities and employers for decades.
It’s also a time to demand the politicians properly fund and support TAFE.
Due to COVID-19 activities this year will primarily be online. See some of our suggested actions are below and more actions will be added on 11 August.
With hundreds of campuses all around the country, TAFE provides high quality vocational education for all and is perfectly positioned to help Australia rebuild, but it urgently needs guaranteed funding to do so. The Morrison government is failing to ensure TAFE has the funding needed. Add your name to our letter to the Prime Minister here.
The lack of support for TAFE impacted deeply even before the COVID crisis, because TAFE needs funding to provide skills, jobs, purpose and opportunities to millions of Australians and to keep our economy strong.
Now more than ever we need to invest in a positive future for all of us.
That’s why we need you to take action to #RebuildWithTAFE and tell all federal politicians to guarantee TAFE funding for a positive future.
There are a number of things you can do to take action as part of this important day.
