Constituency Question: Training & Study Opportunities

Ros SPENCE (Yuroke) (11:38:29) — (14 832) My constituency question is to the Minister for Training and Skills. What resources are available for young people in the Yuroke electorate that are considering what training and study opportunities will be available to them in 2019? The Andrews Labor government’s massive investment in TAFE has restored a number of opportunities for young people to get a qualification they can trust for a career they want. The free TAFE initiative, for example, has been hugely popular, with my office receiving a huge number of inquiries from local residents. As a significant proportion of students in the Yuroke electorate choose to pursue a vocational qualification after completing secondary school, I would greatly appreciate any information about resources that are available to these students as they make decisions about their future careers.
