Abstract/Summary This paper is premised on the notion that, on a cyclic basis, there will be shifts in emphasis between a social service and economic role for TAFE within the broader vocational education and training (VET) sector. Given these shifts, the argument proposed is whether there is a need for TAFE to fulfil both a social service role and to meet the economic utility functions that it performs as the major provider of publicly funded VET in Australia. The broader research around this paper presents an analysis of TAFE's current position as evidenced both by a range of national and state policy documents and from the views of a number of senior officers within Queensland's Dept of Employment and Training (DET). This paper discusses key issues identified by these senior officers regarding what they see as the influences that militate against, or assist in, TAFE Queensland fulfilling either or both a social service or economic utility role
