Call for Aspire College guarantee

Labor education spokeswoman Michelle O’Byrne. THE state opposition has called on the government to guarantee students from the failed Aspire College of Education are able to continue their courses at TAFE.

Aspire College, which has a campus at Mowbray, was placed in voluntary administration last Tuesday after Global Intellectual Holdings became insolvent.

Opposition education spokeswoman Michelle O’Byrne on Monday said Education Minister Jeremy Rockliff needed to step in and provide certainty to students left with a HECS debt, but no future education path.

“These students have been caught totally off-guard as the administrators move in and, through no fault of their own, they are now left in limbo,” Ms O’Byrne said.

“The right thing for the Education Minister to do would be to ensure they are able to transfer into TAFE to complete their education.”

A state government spokesman said while Aspire operated under a Commonwealth program “the Tasmanian government is looking into what support can be provided to affected students”.

Aspire College told students in a letter last week that it was discussing further study options with the Australian Council of Private Education and Training.

“We will communicate the outcome of this to you as soon as possible,” the college said.
