Labor candidate urges Nats candidate to support his view on council ...
Katherine Nicholson's insight:

The Nationals dont have a great track record on sticking to their word.

 

The Deputy Premier and the Minister of Education, both rural Nationals signed a pledge to invest in TAFE, prior to the last election. Instead, they have ripped $8million out of New England Institute of TAFE and defunded Fine Art, closing down the purpose built facilty at Armidale that the previous member fought so hard to gain for the town, and leaving the mostly casual staff, without jobs. Can we trust what the Nationals say?

Katherine Nicholson's insight:

Its time to give proper support to alternative energy options.

Prior to their election the NSW Coalition promised a solar summit, but never delivered. With recently announced improvements to solar technology by the University of NSW that is likely to improve the efficiency of panels and reduce the price of panels even further, we need government to get behind our industry.

Nyaree Donnelly, TAFE NSW Fine Arts graduate, has been working with the local community to coordinate and promote the best artists and performers in the Great Lakes region and shape them into an annual month-long ...
Katherine Nicholson's insight:

The NSW Coalition government have removed all funding for Fine Arts courses in NSW, so fabulous outcomes like Nyaree Donnelly are a thing of the past.

 

The removal of funding for Fine Arts at TAFE has led to the closure of the purpose built Fine Arts facility at Armidale TAFE. All the teachers who were casual and mostly women have lost their jobs. Now the well respected Ceramics and Fine Arts delivery out of Glen Innes will lead to job losses there. In Inverell a casual TAFE teacher is now without work and a very popular course is gone.

SWINBURNE will still close its Lilydale and Prahran campuses despite the State Government funding boost to TAFE.
Katherine Nicholson's insight:

Northern Tablelands, this is what has happened to TAFE in the bush in Victoria, as a result of the government policies that are now proposed to be implemented by July 2014 in NSW.

Imagine if TAFE was gone from our communities. Where would people go?
