Changes to VET student loans
Last week, the Federal government announced a massive overhaul of the Vocational Education and Training loans system, so that they can crack down on dodgy private training colleges. That’s bad news if you ever wanted to do a diploma of circus arts, butler service or jewellery making.

We spoke with Dr Mary Leahy, senior lecturer at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education.
