– Around $200 million a year for Regional TAFEs for vocational education and training, career and employment advice, and TAFE support services.
– $216 million committed over the next four years for the TAFE capital works program to deliver state of the art facilities providing high quality, industry relevant training across WA.
– $2.4 million Regional TAFE International Student Strategy, which aims to attract international students from in-demand occupations to live, work and study in regional WA.
– $3 million for the WA Technical and Vocational Education and Training Consortium to support the development of offshore opportunities and student pipeline creation.
