More claims that vulnerable people are being targeted by aggressive marketing tactics are just more evidence of the urgent need for the Liberals to finally act against the rorting in the vocational education sector.
Today’s claims that companies have been set up to harvest job seeker data and sell them training courses is the latest in a line of allegations of widespread rorting and mismanagement under the Liberal Government.
“The reputation of Australia’s vocational education and training sector is under assault by unscrupulous behaviour and widespread rorting,” Shadow Minister for TAFE and Vocational Education, Kate Ellis said today.
“There is no doubt about it – this behaviour must be addressed to protect students and restore integrity. Vulnerable jobseekers should not be the prey of dodgy sales practices.
“The Government needs to pull its head out of the sand and adopt some of the strong, sensible measures that Labor has proposed. It’s time they acted to protect students – instead of washing their hands of any responsibility for the behaviour under their watch.
“What will it take for the Liberals to finally act on this behaviour?”
