TasTAFE one of the most affordable public provider’s in Australia

Tasmania continues to perform better than the Australian average across most key indicators for apprentices and trainees with commencements increasing by 9.7 per cent in the 12 months to June according to its
Labor Government. Labor leader, Rebecca White has suggested their free TAFE policy for industries facing skills shortages would address issues in attracting workers and apprentices to construction sites and provide opportunities for Tasmanians young and old. The opposition has accused the government of not doing enough to build the state’s skilled workforce through TAFE, saying construction companies are struggling to obtain workers and apprentices for development projects.
