$9.17 million for new Mandurah TAFE hospitality and tourism training centre

A world class hospitality and tourism training centre will be built at South Metropolitan TAFE’s Mandurah campus. The $9.17 million centre will vastly improve the greater Peel region’s capacity to train job-ready, highly skilled chefs, front of house staff, and events management and tourism workers. The new facility, set to replace an ageing home economics-style room, will focus on training apprentice chefs and engaging local secondary students, young people and the long-term unemployed in vocational education and training.

Mandurah’s new state of the-art training facility will meet demand for more skilled workers and build greater youth engagement in the region by expanding training options and the number of half price courses available through the the Lower fees, local skills program. Initially launched in January, the initiative halved the cost of training for 34 high priority qualifications. In July, the program was expanded to include an additional 39 courses reduced by up to 72 per cent to align with the State’s immediate economic needs following COVID-19.
