The WA government has allocated $195 million in its 2024-2025 State budget towards building the skilled workforce.

Accessibility to training remains a priority for the government and in this respect, it has announced an $8 million top-up to continue the Fee Free TAFE initiative in 2025, which aims to upskill the workforce to meet skill shortages in priority areas.

As WA pivots as a global leader in clean energy and defence, increased funding will be allocated towards training for Western Australians in these key areas.

The Skilled Migrant Job Connect Program will receive $5.6 million over three years to ensure skilled migrants are connected to WA employers in jobs that align with their skills and experience.

Funding will also extend the Year 9 Career Taster Program and TAFE College Lecturers Industry Placement Program beyond 2025.
