Thornlie jobs and skills centre opens
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.
