EDUCATION AND TRAINING — PRIVATE TRAINING PROVIDERS

1385. Hon Alison Xamon to the Minister for Education and Training:

I refer to the public funding of private training providers, and I ask:

(a)  for each of the last five financial years:

(i)  what is the annual value of publicly-funded places at private providers;

(ii)  how many publicly funded places were contracted to private providers; and

(iii)  how many of those publicly funded places at private providers are targeted for priority populations; and

(b)  could the Minister please list the courses contracted to be delivered by private providers:

(i)  are any of these courses delivered in towns or cities with an existing TAFE campus; and

(ii)  if yes to (b)(i), will the Minister please specify the locations and the courses that are being delivered?
