Constituency questions – Head Start apprenticeships and traineeships program

Mr J. BULL (Sunbury) (12:06:41) — (14 418) My question is for the Minister for Education. Minister, which schools in my electorate are likely to be involved in the recently announced Head Start apprenticeships and traineeships program? I am delighted that the Andrews Labor government will deliver up to 1700 new apprenticeships and traineeships in priority industries and traditional trades at 100 secondary schools across Victoria. I am thrilled that since coming to government we have invested over $44 million to fund schools in the Sunbury electorate. Compare this figure to the four years under the former Liberal government, where local schools only received $1.76 million. I am excited for my community to be involved in the Head Start program and for the opportunities that it will deliver. This state is seeing more infrastructure than ever before. We are a growing state. We need a skilled workforce that is going to take us through the next decade and beyond. We are getting things done and we are getting on with it.
