Commenting on the story: Confusion and mixed messaging over TAFE course costs
I have every sympathy for Ben and Harvey. My daughter has been enrolled at TAFE for the last two years and we have found the administration of TAFESA to be woeful.
No information available about the courses, elective subjects, term dates etc. When trying to make an enrolment booking my daughter was given two phone numbers to try, and neither were connected.
Courses are chopped and changed on a moment’s notice. I have been shocked at how bad the administration has been. Given the importance of vocational training, quite frankly it’s a disgrace. – Anne Highet
My daughter would like to do a Cert III in floristry, before moving on to study a degree in 2023 when she will be 18.
The floristry course is featured on the government’s myskills (jobtrainer) website as a free or low fee course, but when I contacted TAFE they said the website was wrong: the fees are $8,289.
And it doesn’t look as if we will be eligible for any kind of loan so I can’t see how we can afford it for her. So annoyed. – Linda O’Grady
Commenting on the story: Northern suburbs clinic to target area’s lower vaccination rates
That’s great news for SA, but what is happening with the delays in SA residents being able to return home to SA from NSW while the percentage of vaccinated people slowly climbs up towards the 70 per cent mark?
Is this issue being overlooked by SA Health? Has there been any progress with the backlog of applications waiting to be processed? How much longer can our family members expect to wait in limbo over the border until they are allowed to return home? – Lisa Gough
