      The provisions of the 'Tasmania Tomorrow' initiative by the Tasmanian Labor Government in order to reform and develop the Post Year 10 (PY 10) education system are discussed. The initiative would lead to the establishment of redesigned educational organisations, which would undermine the employment conditions assured by the AEU union for TAFE teachers, in the guise of educational reform.

    • Abstract: Devereaux, Jenni
      In June 2009 the Senate initiated an inquiry into the treatment of international students in Australia as a result of several months of media attention focussing on: acts of violence committed against international students; inadequacies in the provision of training and alleged rorting by private vocational education and training colleges; and questionable practices on the part of a number of education and migration agents overseas and in Australia. The AEU made a submission to the Inquiry and was subsequently called to provide evidence to a hearing on the quality of vocational education and training being delivered to international students. An abridged version of our submission follows.

  • Volume 43 Issue 3 - TAFE Teaching Qualifications at the Cross Roads
    • Abstract: Forward, Pat
      The existing situation of inadequate teaching qualifications of TAFE teachers is discussed in the background of extensive casualisation, an ageing workforce and underfunding. It is suggested that the government should consult with TAFE teachers on the issue, and provide them with appropriate qualifications to enable the continued delivery of vocational training to the community.

  • Volume 43 Issue 3 - Coming to a TAFE near You'
    • Abstract: Robertson, Gillian
      The policy called 'Securing Jobs for Your Future' (also called the Skills Reform policy) launched by the Victorian Government, which would decrease government funding for public education and increase individual costs, is criticised. It is observed that the market-driven policy of the government would deny access to fully government funded education to several people who need it.

    • Abstract: Simon, Linda
      Two new challenges for vocational education and training have taken centre stage the world economic crisis (or downturn) and green skills. New funding and training opportunities have been highlighted by the Federal Government as part of the $42 billion stimulus package to support both industries and workers who lose their jobs. Yet if the downturn intensifies, this will certainly not be enough. Opportunities for workers to up-skill and multi-skill to remain employable should be of critical concern to governments, yet funding and programs are once again only piecemeal.

  • Volume 43 Issue 1 - The Cultural Foundations of VET and the European
           Qualifications Framework: A Comparison of Germany and Britain
    • Abstract: Deissinger, Thomas
      In a 'system' perspective, VET can take different shapes. Besides the apprenticeship system, school-based forms of vocational learning, such as 'vocational grammar schools' in France, 'vocational colleges' in Germany or further education colleges in Britain, represent more or less traditional courses and qualifications which are normally institution-based, shaped by state influence and more or less clearly didactically steered pedagogical arrangements. There are, however, differences when it comes to formally linking up these traditional structures with general or higher education. It also seems that countries differ in terms of their VET systems and traditions, especially with respect to the relationship between full-time VET and company-based training, but also, when it comes to Europe, in terms of their adaptability to the overarching European VET policy ideas. One of these ideas is the conceptualisation of National Qualifications Frameworks, linked with notions of "Lifelong Learning". In its White Paper on Growth, Competitiveness and Employment (European Commission 1993), the European Commission pointed out that Lifelong Learning should become "the overall objective to which the national educational communities can make their own contributions". Two years later, in the White Paper on Teaching and Training Towards the Learning Society (European Commission 1995), the concept of Lifelong Learning became associated with the idea of a 'personal skills card' for every European citizen which would document the acquisition of new knowledge both in formal and informal learning environments. These new concepts imply that the borders between different sectors within the educational and/or training system, including higher and further education, should become permeable and the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), emerging from the so-called "Lisbon-Brugge- Copenhagen Process", repeats the underlying principles of a policy which challenges each of the member countries in a specific way.

      Professor Helen Garnet in her final newsletter to staff as Vice Chancellor of Charles Darwin University (CDU) stated: "The creation of the new Charles Darwin University in 2003 marked a watershed in the Northern Territory when the Northern Territory University, Centralian College, NT Rural College, and the Menzies School of Health Research all came together to form the new institution. Together as a single institution we are able to envision a clearer and bigger future." In reality this watershed marked the end of TAFE in the Northern Territory. The incumbent government of the time saw an opportunity to absolve itself of the responsibility for direct management of Tertiary and Further Education and merely maintain a minimal role of funding a market driven VET sector.

  • Volume 43 Issue 1 - Gillard on Bradley on VET
    • Abstract: Moodie, Gavin
      For once an Australian Government has introduced a policy increasing competition in tertiary education which apparently actually favours TAFE Institutes. In her speech to the Universities Australia conference on 4 March 2009 Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard said: "All Australian universities will be funded on the basis of student demand from 2012. This means that we will fund a Commonwealth supported place for all domestic students accepted into an eligible, accredited higher education course at a recognised public higher education provider. Universities will not receive funding for places they do not deliver." There are currently 10 TAFE Institutes which are already recognised public higher education providers with accredited higher education programs. This decision is important to TAFE Institutes for three reasons; it gives them access to publicly funded higher education places, it gives TAFE Institutes a significant competitive advantage over private non-university tertiary education providers, and it is likely to encourage the extension of demand-driven funding to at least the upper levels of vocational education and training.

    • Abstract: Kaye, John
      Australia as never before needs a well funded, vibrant, public provider of Vocational Education and Training. Yet proposed market-based changes to the funding and regulation of the sector will inevitably undermine the nation's TAFE systems and with it the ability of working people to adapt, innovate and participate in the nations' political, cultural and economic life. It is a matter of urgent national priority that the marketisation agenda be reversed and that the nation's politicians and population be reminded that the 'E' in both TAFE and VET stands for Education. The delivery of quality education as an integral component of vocational training will not survive the competitive funding structures being designed and implemented around Australia, yet it is essential to addressing the key challenges of climate change and global economic collapse.

      As the catastrophe of the Global Financial Crisis unfolds, the economic orthodoxy of the free market has come under intense criticism. Anyone who has been involved in VET over the past two decades will recognise the profound influence that market ideology has had on the sector. Since the early 1990s, VET has been progressively redesigned within a market framework and driven by competition and contestability policies. Yet paradoxically, at precisely the same time the free market was imploding and declared dead by governments and economists in the wake of the GFC, the market has been reinstated as master in the new VET reform agenda.
