As the number of apprentices plummets, businesses are complaining that #TAFE isn’t training for the skills they need. #abc730 @Ally__bee…
“Currently the #TAFE curriculum is at least 10-15 years old. We have to now set up in-house training facilities. It would take us another 12 months, minimum, to get them up to scratch.” Jason Elias, Precision Metals Group. #abc730
#TAFE and TAFE teachers have to follow the curriculum and the requirements that are set by industry. So our message to employers is go and talk to your industry association.” Craig Robertson @TafeDirectors Australia. #abc730 #TAFE

Hey @MathiasCormann @JoshFrydenberg

Did you two do the figures for #JobTrainer?

I'm just asking bcuz they don't add up.

Let's take a closer look at what @ScottMorrisonMP & @SenatorCash announced today.

$2 billion #JobTrainer announcement was split into two parts:

Part 1
$1.5 billion to subsidize 180K apprentices until March 2021

Part 2
Commonwealth training commitment of $500 million + this amount will be matched by the states $500 million = $1 billion in total

Let's look at Part 1:
$1.5 billion subsidies for 180K apprentices

PM's media release states business will receive "up to $7000 per quarter"

Sept 2020 to March 2021= 2 qtrs (or $14K per apprentice)

180K x $14K = $2.52 billion

($1 billion more than PM's announcement)

The federal government has unveiled another stimulus package, this one called #JobTrainer. It will provide extra training courses and extend wage subsidies for apprentices. But there are concerns the scheme doesn't go far enough. #abc730 @michaelatkin
Ella Brown runs a construction business with 7 apprentices. She is pleased about the new #JobTrainer package. “I think my reaction straight away, this morning was, oh, a bit of relief to have some support.” #abc730 #auspol
The latest figures show more than 23,000 apprentices and trainees have been stood down or had their training cancelled since March. And that figure is climbing despite taxpayer funding on offer to keep them employed. #abc730 #auspol
