CONSTITUENCY QUESTION ON SOUTHWEST INSTITUTE OF TAFE

My constituency question is directed to the Minister for Training and Skills and Minister for Higher Education, and it relates to particular courses at Warrnambool TAFE. Western Victoria is home to a significant sector of the racing industry, and it is logical that Warrnambool TAFE should provide courses for stable hands. Stable hands play an essential role in the care and maintenance of racehorses and are critical to the ongoing operation of the racing industry. My question to the minister goes to why it is that Racing Victoria provide information directing potential students to Warrnambool TAFE but this local training institution has no courses on offer and local Warrnambool students have to travel hours to receive training, often to Melbourne and often from private provider.
