    The State Government has set up a round the clock hotline to field thousands of queries from prospective TAFE students.
     
    Education Minister Kay Hallahan today announced TAFELINE, which was part of a major shakeup of TAFE enrolment procedures.
     
    Mrs Hallahan said people wanting information on full-time, part-time and hobby courses, enrolment dates, student fees, the nearest TAFE college, the next TAFE newspaper advertisement or counselling services could contact the hotline.
     
    "TAFE is facing unprecedented demand for its courses and services and this means thousands of queries from prospective students on a range of matters," she said.
     
    "The new 24 hour a day, seven day a week TAFELINE allows members of the community to obtain information from a single contact point and at their leisure rather than business hours or other limited times.
     
    "TAFELINE provides detailed, accurate and consistent information about TAFE and its courses and saves people shopping around for information from different colleges."
     
    The initiative was a key part of the Government's `Smart Move' campaign to provide education and training opportunities for Western Australians.
     
    TAFELINE numbers were 235 5555 for metro callers or 008 809 861 toll free for country callers.
