条条大路通罗马,行行出状元。 对于不上大学的学生而言,通过技职培训,学习更好的工作技能,对于学生未来的职业规划有着举足轻重的重要性。

可惜的是,自2014 年以来,维州接受技职培训的学生人数下降幅度超过 30%,从 2014 年间的 46万名学生减少到去年仅 31.5 万名。

这数据无疑代表成千上万名维州学生和 TAFE 或相关的技职培训失之交臂,失去学习电脑、工程、建筑、医护、商业与服务等领域的职业技能。

儘管 Daniel Andrews 当初承诺,工党执政后会改善维州技职培训,然则数据显示,越改越糟。 维州需要一个能真正解决问题的政府,学生更是需要适时获得良好的培训教育。

Fewer students get vocational training in Victoria


For students who don’t go to university, vocational training is vital for learning the skills to get a good job.


However, the number of students receiving vocational training in Victoria has plunged by more than 30% since 2014, from over 460,000 student in 2014 to fewer than 315,000 last year.


This means that thousands of Victorian students are missing out on training at a TAFE or other provider to learn skills in areas such as information technology, engineering, building, nursing, business or hospitality.


Premier Andrews promised a Labor government would improve vocational training, but instead Labor have made it worse. Victoria needs a government that will fix the mess so students can get the training they need.
