Jobs & Skills WA

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.

Priorities include apprenticeships, eligible traineeships and priority industry qualifications.

• an Australian citizen; OR
• a permanent visa holder; OR
• a holder of visa subclass 309, 820 or 826; OR

Under Jobs & Skills WA:

• There is no upper age limit; AND
• There are no restrictions based on your previous level of awarded qualification; however you will need to meet any course entry requirements

Students in all equity groups expect for jobseekers may on completion of one qualification, enrol in a second qualification at the same or a higher level. Students who fail to complete one qualification may enrol in a second qualification with the prior approval via Aged Care Training Services.
