Australian Greens Education spokesperson Senator Mehreen Faruqi has said that the government’s ‘JobTrainer’ scheme is heavy on spin and hugely hypocritical for a government that has overseen the marketisation and disintegration of public vocational education.
Senator Faruqi said:
“This is a government that has systematically gutted public TAFE over many years.
“We have seen the failures of government-subsidised, for-profit vocational education. We should not be going down the same path.
