Sheet Metal Delivery Axed From Campbelltown TAFE

NSW Labor have demanded the NSW Government reverse its decision to remove sheet

metal delivery from Campbelltown TAFE.

Students and staff at the TAFE have been offered no explanation as to why the course

is being cut, further adding to their frustrations.

The NSW Government had attempted to cease the course at Campbelltown TAFE after

a new facility at Wetherill Park was opened in 2014/15.

However that decision was eventually reversed following backlash.

Shadow Minister for Western Sydney and Member for Campbelltown, Greg Warren,

said the NSW Government had a history of cutting courses at the Campbelltown

campus, with this just the latest example.

“Given the construction boom in Macarthur and the developments with the new airport

in Western Sydney, you would think this government would be investing in courses like

sheet metal delivery – not cutting those classes,” he said.

“It means that local students will now be forced to travel to Wetherill Park for the course.

“This decision was made with no consultation or regard for students and staff and it

must be reversed.”

Shadow Minister for Skills and TAFE, Tim Crackanthorp MP, said the NSW Government

had embarked on a mission to destroy TAFE in the past decade.

“Between 2012 and 2019, 4500 TAFE teachers and support staff lost their jobs,” Mr

Crakanthorp said.

“Western Sydney campuses were the hardest hit with staffing levels cut by up to 75 per

cent.

“An investment in TAFE is an investment in our state’s future, but that is something this

NSW Government simply do not understand.”
