This is completely wrong. The TAFE's are there to provide training that 
the students want and the students want training that will get them a 
job[1] .

If the Australian IT industry [2] feels that TAFE courses are not relevant 
to what the industry wants then they should work with the TAFE people to 
change the courses.

Here are some links for NSW, I'm sure other states will have similar.


[1] - At least in IT's cases we are talking about here. There are various
       other courses for hobbies, general interest and the like.

[2] - Especially the ones reading this list.
