Our priorities: Sharing prosperity

Unlocking the potential of our economic, social and environmental future

Unlocking the potential of our economic, social and environmental future

Update: COVID-19

This program has been deferred indefinitely, while the State Government focuses on its response to COVID-19.
Further updates will be provided in due course. 


Our Priorities: Sharing Prosperity is the WA Government’s response to the challenge of focusing the capacity of State Government to deliver better outcomes for all Western Australians. It’s a statement of intent focused on whole-of-government targets that can unlock the potential of our economic, social and environmental future. 

Targeted skills development through VET is an important contributor to all of these areas, as is the creation and growth of jobs and the ongoing development of the Western Australian workforce.

The Department of Training and Workforce Development will contribute to all six target areas, and is playing a key role in three — a strong economy, a bright future, and regional prosperity.

We will keep you informed of our progress and how you can get involved, when work continues on the Our Priorities initiative.
