Our Plan to expand Fee-TAFE and Boost Skills
We have a critical skills gap in this country. Today we have 70,000 fewer apprenticeships and traineeships compared to 2013.
TAFE graduates earn an average of $19,000 a year more than those without qualifications, and add billions to the economy.
That’s why Labor will provide more Australians access to Fee-Free TAFE and create a further 20,000 more university places to tackle skill shortages holding back our COVID-19 comeback.
Better skills means a better future.
