Queensland Training Assets Management Authority
On 14 August 2015, the Queensland Training Assets Management Authority (QTAMA) was abolished, following the commencement of legislation that was passed by the Queensland Parliament in July 2015 to dissolve QTAMA and return control of the state's training assets to the Department of Education and Training. Read the Minister for Training and Skills'
media release for more information.
The legislation is a critical step in implementing Rescuing TAFE, a key Queensland Government election commitment to invest $34 million over three years to restore TAFE as the premier public vocational education and training (VET) provider in the state.
New asset management arrangements will ensure TAFE Queensland has priority access to state-owned training assets which will support them in the planning and delivery of quality training.
Leasing of training assets to public and private providers will be managed by the department, with TAFE Queensland to receive priority access to all facilities at a subsidised rate. Read the
