The Western Australia Government offers a range of course at reduced fees under the Lower fees, local skills initiative.

Jobs and Skills WA provides a subsidised training place for eligible students enrolled in courses that are deemed State priority qualifications, where a training place is available.

Types of Funding:


The Participation Program focuses on the delivery of training for those sections of the population that are under-represented in the workforce and face barriers to mainstream training arrangements.


This program focuses on making available a range of qualifications that address priority industry needs of the State through a non employment-based training pathway.

This program has two target groups, jobseekers and existing workers. The qualifications offered may be delivered in any region throughout WA for both target groups.
