The federal government has allocated $850 million for 465,000 fee-free TAFE places and for TAFE infrastructure. Additionally, 45,000 additional TAFE places for “industries suffering acute shortages” have been created, alongside a $50 million TAFE technology fund.

Focus will be on apprentices and trainees, with one in 10 workers on a federally funded government project being an apprentice or trainee. Prime minister Anthony Albanese said the government was focusing on growing the vocational sector.

The Jobs and Skills Summit will bring together unions, business groups, and the people who help run our world-class VET sector, to look at how we deliver immediate action on the skills shortages Australia is facing.
