Parliamentary Secretary for Higher Education and Skills appointment

 am honoured and privileged to be appointed the Parliamentary Secretary for Higher Education and Skills by the Prime Minister.

This is an exciting challenge for me and I am humbled that the Prime Minister has expressed confidence in my ability.

The Gillard Labor Government has a huge agenda for higher education and skills.

I look forward to working more closely with the Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Science and Research, Senator Chris Evans.

I have a long-standing personal and professional interest in education, training and skills.

Prior to entering the House of Representatives in October 2004, I was a high school teacher and TAFE teacher.

During the Parliamentary term 2007-10, I served as the Chair of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Education and Training.

I am looking forward to strongly continuing to serve the people of Cunningham and the Illawarra region in my new role as Parliamentary Secretary for Higher Education and Skills.
