Regional labour market reviews

Regional labour market reviews

The Western Australian State Government is committed to ensuring that TAFE colleges deliver training that aligns with future job growth in the regions. The Department of Training and Workforce Development is undertaking an annual labour market review for each of the nine regions of Western Australia, to provide a basis for the development of region-specific lists of occupations that are difficult to fill. These lists and other findings from the regional labour market reviews guide training delivery that aligns with employment needs in each region.

The labour market reviews also aim to inform the Department, regional TAFE colleges and industry and community stakeholders on current and future labour market trends, current attraction and retention issues being experienced by employers, and education and training issues identified in each region.

The regional labour market reviews will be published here, as they become available. Further information on the reports of the regional labour market reviews, please contact us by email at
