Jobs and 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 of Training and Workforce Development, 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.
Many other important industry qualifications are also subsidised under Jobs and Skills WA, including general industry training courses and foundation skills and equity courses.

 

Priority Industry Training

Priority industry qualifications equip learners to take up jobs in skilled occupations that are in high demand across Western Australia. The Priority industry qualifications list (PIQL) is updated each year to reflect changes in the WA economy.
Where a job aligns to a priority industry qualification that is no longer in highest demand, the qualification is labelled transitional. Learners enrolled in a transitional priority industry qualification in 2018 are advised that the course may be reclassified as a general industry training course in 2019. Where this occurs, any units commenced in 2019 will attract the higher course fee rate that applies to general industry training courses. The transitional qualifications are identified separately in the PIQL.

 

Participation- Equity Program

Equity courses promote equality of opportunity in gaining access to vocational education and training (VET), or employment. Like foundation skills courses, learners pay a relatively small fee for equity courses with around 99% of the course subsidised by the State Government.
The list of equity courses identifies those that are currently eligible to receive a government subsidy, subject to available budget.
