Campbell Newman, Premier of Queensland: Don’t close our TAFE

    1. Petition by

      Queenslanders Uniting

The Newman Government is considering closing 38 TAFE campuses across Queensland. Tell the Government this is not on - sign the petition.

This move will immediately deprive thousands of Queenslanders of the opportunity to access training at a reasonable price, and close to home. It will stop them being able to get jobs in all sorts of industries – such as health, community services, hospitality, sports, building, and entertainment.

What’s more, the closure of TAFE campuses will ultimately mean that Queensland employers won’t have access to the number of skilled workers that they need.

Tell Campbell Newman that our state future is about more than money. Make sure our leaders know how you feel.

      I undertook TAFE training as part of my Apprenticeship in the early 1980s. The Programs that are available today are as important as in the past. I understand the need to develop new strategies, but there is also a need to provide suitable and adequate training for jobs and vocations that are not covered buy the University/College system.

      To secure future skills in trades and prevent using overseas labour

      Because closing TAFE centres is a blatantly bad thing for the people right now and in the future as well as hurting the economy in the long run. We already have a shortage of skilled workers and many people use TAFE as a stepping stone to university. This is retarded as shit and I can't believe I have to actually explain why this would be a bad thing for a multitude more reasons than I have space to write in here.
