Senator BUSHBY (TasmaniaGovernment Whip in the Senate) (15:55): At the request of Senator McKenzie, I move:

That the Senate—

(a) congratulates Central Queensland University on its partnership with TAFE [technical and further education] and notes a number of universities have forged partnerships with regional TAFEs to develop:

(i) new courses,

(ii) new regional university centres,

(iii) pathway programs in areas relevant to local regional industry, and

(iv) pathways to higher education; and

(b) recognises that further expansion to higher education access for all students, whether studying at universities, TAFEs or private colleges, will provide a further boost to regional economies by ensuring:

(i) greater student accessibility to higher education,

(ii) a more skilled regional workforce, and

(iii) the opportunity for education institutions to expand and thereby employ more people and invest back into the local community.

Question agreed to.
