“I have no idea how the TAFE SA class is going to affect my qualification at all.” – Isaiah, TAFE SA Student

Late last year, thousands of TAFE SA students had their futures thrown into turmoil. 14 courses were found to be substandard by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) and face suspension, with the qualifications of over 1300 students up in the air. Will students have to retake classes they’ve already completed in order to properly graduate?

Wavelength interviewed Alex Reid, interim chair of TAFE SA, to work out exactly what the remediation plan is for those students affected, and what those students who are awaiting graduation need to do next. Listen below:

So, that’s TAFE SA’s plan, but where do the students affected currently stand? Unfortunately, it’s still not clear: TAFE SA have appealed the suspensions and have been given until March 2, 2018 to submit an application for reconsideration to ASQA. You can read their full statement here.
