Thorn­lie jobs and skills cen­tre opens

Comment News (Armadale) - - Front Page - Ben Smith

THE State Govern­ment has un­veiled its first five jobs and skills cen­tres at met­ro­pol­i­tan Tafe cam­puses.

The cen­tres at the Thorn­lie, Joon­dalup, Balga, North­bridge and Rock­ing­ham cam­puses aim to in­crease ac­cess to job-re­lated ser­vices.

They will pro­vide free pro­fes­sional and prac­ti­cal ad­vice on train­ing and em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties, ca­reer ad­vice and ap­pren­tice­ship and train­ing in­for­ma­tion to stu­dents and job­seek­ers.

Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing Min­is­ter Sue Ellery said the cen­tres would bring to­gether ca­reers cen­tres, Abo­rig­i­nal Work­force De­vel­op­ment and train­ing ser­vices to cre­ate a col­lab­o­ra­tive op­er­a­tion.

“When ser­vice providers work col­lab­o­ra­tively, they pro­vide in­di­vid­u­als, em­ploy­ers and in­dus­try with the best prod­uct and in this case the prod­uct is all about cre­at­ing jobs,” she said.

“Our new jobs and skills cen­tres will work with lo­cal in­dus­tries to iden­tify job op­por­tu­ni­ties that will be cre­ated by the fu­ture growth.”

Premier Mark Mc­Gowan said the cen­tres would help cre­ate a strong train­ing sec­tor which would serve as a plat­form to grow the econ­omy.
