Just 3.2 per cent of 15 year olds in 2015 expected that they would go on to study for a TAFE diploma, according to the latest available Program for International Student Assessment data. This compared to 6.2 per cent in 2008 and eight per cent in 2003. TAFE diplomas provide an entry point to jobs in sectors such as nursing and IT, and the lack of students expecting to undertake one will increase the need for workers from overseas to fill jobs in these sectors. Meanwhile, KPMG has just released a report that calls on the federal government to assume control over vocational education and training.
