Lib’s war over TAFE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

THE Turn­bull Gov­ern­ment is calling on La­bor to re­lease more de­tails on its $470 mil­lion TAFE plan, over con­cerns tax­pay­ers will foot the bill for shonky cour­ses.

Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Si­mon Birm­ing­ham claims La­bor’s last at­tempt at tax­payer­funded VET cour­ses cost $2.9 bil­lion, be­cause of shonky cour­ses. “We need more builders and plumbers, not the ther­a­peu­tic arts coun­sel­lors or vet­eri­nary Chi­nese herbal medicine prac­ti­tion­ers,” he said.
