TAFE

TAFE is now part of Training WA and offers practical courses in a large range of fields, from art & design to youth work and everything in between! A TAFE course can be a great way to develop and broaden your skills in your chosen field. Some courses will completely qualify you for a profession, some will increase your level of qualification and some are just for personal interest. As already mentioned on this page you can start TAFE when you’re in year 11 or 12, or you can finish normal school and go to TAFE when you’ve finished. TAFEWA is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) which means that if you do an apprenticeship or traineeship TAFE may be responsible for ensuring the quality of training and assessment. In general TAFE courses are more hands-on than uni courses and don’t require the high school marks that some uni courses do. For all the details on courses, fees and entry requirements have a look at Training WA’s website.
