​​​​​​Department of Training and Workforce Development

The Department of Training and Workforce Development, in addition to its vital training role, now has a much broader responsibility which includes a focus on workforce development. Workforce development aims to build, attract and retain a skilled workforce to meet the economic needs of Western Australia, to minimise skill shortages and maximise the State's ability to respond to new opportunities. The Department will work with industry, the community and Government to build a workforce which is productive, inclusive, efficient and mobile.
