The State Training Board will undertake extensive consultation with industry over the coming months to look at ways to increase the take up of apprenticeships and traineeships across Western Australia.
The consultation, in metropolitan and regional WA, is part of the Government’s election commitment to create jobs and revitalise the State Training Board.
Industry, small to large employers, apprentices and trainees will be consulted. This will provide the Board and the State Government with industry insight to help make strategic decisions about WA’s future training needs.
The Government’s Plan for Jobs has a strong focus on job creation that will see Western Australia’s State Training Board front and centre in the drive to ensure training meets the skill requirements of the State.
The State Training Board has also released the State Training Plan 2017-2020 which includes a focus on the skills required by the aged care, disability and health sectors and a commitment to ensure Western Australians can access quality training through their local TAFE or private training provider.
