SIGNIFICANT BOOST FOR SKILLS TRAINING IN THE SOUTH WEST

The Commonwealth Government and the WA State Government have launched the Western Australian JobTrainer Agreement.

An extra $103.4 million is being injected into Western Australia’s vocational education and training (VET) sector.

This will fund free or low-fee training places, with a combination of short and long courses for job seekers, and young people, including school leavers.

Federal Member for Forrest Nola Marino said this is a fantastic result for Forrest and will ensure more people can upskill and reskill for work
.
“Skills training, development of new skills in growth sectors and creation of pathways to more qualifications will be vital part of our recovery from COVID-19” Minister Marino said.
