Tender opens for preferred provider panels: 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.

Under Jobs and Skills WA, contracting arrangement processes have been developed specifically to invite private training providers to receive WA Government funding for the delivery of VET programs in Western Australia. Through a competitive tender process, the Department selects suitable registered training organisations (RTOs) who are then offered a contract to be placed on a preferred provider panel for programs that meet the State’s priorities. Once on the panel, an RTO is then able to request funding under Jobs and Skills WA for student places.

The Department of Training and Workforce Development is inviting applications from registered training providers interested in being appointed to one or more of the 2023—25 preferred provider panels for delivery of:

  • Apprenticeships;
  • Traineeships;
  • Priority Industry Training;
  • Participation—Equity; and
  • Participation—-Work Readiness programs.

Contracted training places will be allocated to providers on preferred provider panels annually.

The tender opens at 9 am on 11 July 2022, and closes at 4 pm on Friday 5 August 2022.
