Health care, aged care and agriculture need qualified workers more than ever. But that requires a cohesive plan to sustain our rural and regional workforce.
I will push for the implementation of the national strategy on rural education.
I will continue to work with government to uncap regional university places, increase funding for TAFE and vocational education, and offer greater financial support for regional students.
These measures will improve educational access and outcomes for regional, rural and remote students and enable Indi to meet the future needs of its communities.
