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.

You are eligible for a guaranteed training place if you have left school and are:

  • an Australian citizen; or
  • a permanent visa holder; or
  • a holder of a sub-class 309, 444, 785, 790 or 820 visa; or

  • must be at least 15 years old;

Under Jobs & Skills WA:

• There is no upper age limit; AND

There are no restrictions on the number of qualifications that an individual student can undertake. However, approval must be sought for students engaging in more than one qualification at the same time prior to training taking place.
