Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews has presented more than 25,000 signed petitions to regional sitting of State Parliament, of which over 1,000 were collected from the Brunswick Electorate, calling on the Baillieu Government to reverse its callous budget cuts to TAFE, State Member for Brunswick Jane Garrett said today.
Topic: "equal opportunity"
State Member for Brunswick, Jane Garrett is inviting members of her electorate to take part in her consultation into the issue of work life balance.
Ms Garrett said in an increasingly dynamic economy, and fast paced society, there are mounting pressures on employees and individuals, with their personal and family time suffering as a consequence.
Students will suffer from the Baillieu Government’s multi-million dollar cut to TAFE and vocational training with possible course cuts, staff losses and escalating fees, State Member for Brunswick, Jane Garrett MP said today.
Jane Garrett said local students were already under pressure with end of year exams and deciding what studies they will do next year without having to worry about if they can get into a course or have to pay higher than expected fees.
