Anthony Albanese has been criticised for using a picture of a British nurse in an advert for his free TAFE policy.

The Labor leader posted the picture on his Twitter account on Tuesday with the caption: ‘We need more nurses. That’s why Labor is going to make 465,000 TAFE places free, and support 20,000 more uni places.’ 

But eagle-eyed followers were quick to notice that the leader’s digital team had used a photo of a British nurse with an NHS badge instead of an Australian.

One commenter wrote: ‘Took me about two seconds to recognise that is an NHS nurse in the UK. Could have perhaps used a local photo.

‘It’s a good plan, but your media director needs a wrap over the knuckles on this one.’

Another commenter said: ‘I didn’t realise our nurses were NHS’.

Liberal Senator Hollie Hughes said the blunder was especially embarrassing because Mr Albanese has been vocal about stopping the ‘offshoring’ of local jobs and bringing more manufacturing roles to Australia.

‘It seems Labor’s plan for a future made in Australia is based entirely on a future made overseas,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.

‘Each way Albo is doing what he does best, having an each way bet.’  

A spokesman for Mr Albanese declined to comment on the mistake.

The Labor leader announced his policy to deliver 465,000 free TAFE places in a speech in Sydney in early December.  

Under the plan, TAFE would receive an extra $621million over four years, including $50million for a building works fund. 

Currently TAFE places are heavily subsidised under Scott Morrison’s JobTrainer scheme. 

Labor would also spend $481.7million to deliver up to 20,000 extra university places over 2022 and 2023.

But Employment Minister Stuart Robert accused Labor of offering less money for skills training than the Government which has spent $3.9billion on subsiding apprentice wages through the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements scheme.   

‘The Morrison Government is the best friend apprentices have ever had,’ he said.
