The Liberals cannot be taken seriously on TAFE or skills and apprenticeships after six years of savage cuts and policy chaos.

Tasmanians won’t be fooled by an election eve announcement that does little to fix the damage of years of cuts.

Federal Member for Braddon Justine Keay said, “Since being elected, the Liberals have cut $3 billion from TAFE and there are now nearly 150,000 fewer Australian apprentices.

“The reality is the Liberals have done absolutely nothing over the last six years to address the loss of apprenticeships in Tasmania which has occurred under their watch.”
