Help Stop Proposed Community Sector Qualifications Fee Increases

By 20/07/2020No Comments

The Australian Services Union is  calling on the Federal Government to abandon its plan to increase the costs of Social Work and related degrees like Social Science, Social Welfare, Human Services, Community Welfare, Behavioural Science, Psychology and Counselling by 113%.

If the Government proceeds with these fee hikes, there will not be enough skilled and professional social and community services workers to deliver essential support services to the community and  the predominantly female and low-paid workforce will be saddled with even higher debt from their education that they may never be able to pay off during their working lives.
