Investing in VET at Swan TAFE

The Minister for Education, Julia Gillard, visited Swan TAFE in Perth to announce Australian Government funding to support a range of infrastructure and fast-tracked apprenticeship projects. The Carlisle Campus of Swan TAFE will receive a grant of $5.9 million under the $200 million Training Infrastructure Investment for Tomorrow element of the Teaching and Learning Capital Fund for Vocational Education and Training (TLCF). The upgrade will provide an additional 150 full time and 360 post trade training places in the conventional and emerging green technology areas of the automotive trade.
