KANGAN Institute has not ruled out running classes in Sunbury, despite the state government's funding cuts to TAFE courses in Victoria.
As reported in the Weekly earlier this year, Kangan had been in discussions with the government and other education providers about offering classes in Sunbury.
This followed Victoria University's decision to sell its Jacksons Hill site.
Higher Education and Skills Minister Peter Hall said at the time the discussions were a "major step forward" for the community.
Since then the government has announced $300 million budget funding cuts to the TAFE sector. Kangan announced that 52 courses, including 33 at the Broadmeadows campus, would be cut.
A Kangan spokesman said last week that the institute was still looking at options in Sunbury.
"There are 250 courses with great employment outcomes [which] will continue and Kangan Institute will continue to work with Hume City to scope what might be of value in the Sunbury area."
A Victoria University spokeswoman said the cuts wouldn't affect any decisions it made about education in Sunbury.
