We recognise the distress felt by students as a result of Careers
Australia entering into voluntary administration.
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. It is important that all students
contact this number and provide their details.
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.
If students would also like to leave their details with TAFE NSW,
they can call our Student Hotline on 1300 923 758 and once Careers
Australia's administrator advises on the situation we will inform
students via email of next steps.
TDA will hold two one hour long information sessions for
affected DomesticCareers Australia students at TAFE
NSW Ultimo campus on Friday June 2. The first session will commence at
9:30 and this will be followed by a second session at 12pm. Interested
students are welcome to attend either session to find out more about
