What is JobTrainer?

JobTrainer Western Australia is a joint investment by the Australian government and the WA state government into the vocational education and training (VET) sector. Residents of Western Australia share in $104 million of new training opportunities from January 2021.

New workers, school leavers, and other Western Australians are eligible for free and low cost training, while existing apprentices and trainees have their wages subsidised. This will secure employment for the full term of their apprenticeship.

Courses under JobTrainer are nationally recognised and range from Certificate I through Advanced Diploma level. There are also short courses and skills sets that enable students to get a licence or work permit, or enrol in higher education.
