TAFE Directors Australia (TDA) operates the Tuition Assurance Scheme for Careers Australia. This scheme is designed to assist students move to another provider if it is necessary so that they can continue their training and access VET student loans. TDA has established a call centre to enable students to provide their details and seek advice. The number is (07) 3307 4789.

At this stage, students are advised not to enrol with any other providers. TAFE NSW is involved in these discussions as a potential alternative provider if it is necessary.
