Jobs and Skills Centres

Jobs and Skills Centres

The Department is working with TAFE colleges, service providers and other stakeholders to establish Jobs and Skills Centres (JSCs) to fulfil the election commitment to transform Western Australia's TAFE colleges into industry skill centres. Jobs and Skills Centres are a new State Government service offering free career, training and employment assistance. The first five metropolitan TAFE Jobs and Skills Centres opened on 16 April 2018, and services will be progressively rolled out through the course of 2018. 

The centres are a one-stop-shop for anyone looking to improve their skills and job prospects – including students, jobseekers and career changers. The centres will engage with their local communities and industry so they can respond effectively to the needs of their clients.  When fully implemented the community and industry will have increased access to services with a Statewide network of five metropolitan TAFE locations, eight regional locations and a number of regional outreach centres.
