Training opportunities taken up in the regions

The WA Government is providing training grants across 45 regional communities to develop workforce skills and grow job opportunities.

The Regional Traineeship Program supports local government authorities and Community Resource Centres (CRCs) to provide local training, skills and employment opportunities, providing grants of up to $30,000.

The WA Government’s $1.35 million investment will support vocational education training for 45 organisations and their local communities – including expanding the traineeship program to nine regional local governments for the first time.

A further 17 organisations are currently being assessed for funding. The funds are administered through the WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.
