Pick Up the Tools will investigate the role of vocational education in a new campaign

Increased funding support for TasTAFE is the solution to Tasmania’s shortage of skilled tradespeople.

That is according to key industry stakeholders, who believe the blame for the state’s worsening apprenticeship crisis can be laid at the feet of the management of the vocational education sector.​

The Examiner will be investigating the role TasTAFE has to play in Tasmania’s new education landscape in its new campaign Pick up the Tools.

The campaign aims to lobby for a clear state and federal funding agreement for the vocational education sector and shed light on the positive role TasTAFE has to play in the state’s trade industry.
