Jobs and Skills WA and VET programs

Jobs and Skills WA and VET programs

As Western Australia’s economy grows and diversifies, the outlook for jobs is constantly changing. Jobs and Skills WA is the way the State Government, through the Department, prioritises its investment in training to focus on courses that equip people to take up jobs that are, or will be, in high demand.

Jobs and Skills WA provides a subsidised training place for eligible students enrolled in courses that are deemed State priority qualifications, where a training place is available.

Priority training includes apprenticeships, eligible traineeships and priority industry qualifications. Many other important industry qualifications are also subsidised under Jobs and Skills WA, including general industry training courses and foundation skills and equity courses.
