Education and Training

I was the first person in my family to finish school, let alone go to university. I know the transformative impact that a good education can have on your life. It’s clear the Morrison Government sees education as just a commodity. That’s the difference between us and them. Labor believes that a great education, from early education right through to universities and TAFEs, is the ticket to a lifetime of opportunity.

A Labor Government would:

  • Make childcare cheaper. It’s good for children, families and the economy. 
  • Fix the fundamentals of our schools. Australia should be at the top of the pack, not the bottom. 
  • Restore the status of TAFE and training in Australia. 
  • Reverse the trend that has seen places cut and fees double at our universities 
  • Supercharge innovation with loans for 2,000 new firms.

Early childhood education.

A good start in life means a strong early childhood education system. Child care has become too expensive, and too complicated. Labor will make childcare cheaper for 97% of families and we’ll remove the barriers that are holding second income earners – mostly women – back from work. It's a win-win. 

Our schools should lead the world.

Public education is one of our great achievements as a society, and it always should be. But under the Morrison Government, we’ve seen almost a decade of declining school results in reading, maths and science. We need a Labor Government to fix the fundamentals of our schools. We need a school system where no one is held back and no one is left behind. 

Rebuilding skills and training. 

Australian workers are second to none. But under the Morrison Government, there are at least 100,000 fewer people doing an apprenticeship or traineeship than there were almost a decade ago. Labor will bring back apprenticeships, guaranteeing that one in 10 workers on federally-funded projects will be an apprentice, trainee or cadet. We’ll also back in TAFE, ensuring at least 70% of all public funding for vocational education goes to TAFE. 

A stronger university system. 

The Morrison Government has shown nothing but disdain for our uni sector. They excluded universities from JobKeeper and as a result we’ve seen tens of thousands of jobs lost. Labor will halt the neglect of our university system that has seen places cut and fees double. Under a Labor Government, if you get the marks, you should get the opportunity to go to university.
