About us

It all starts here.

Whatever your time in life, wherever you are in your career, whoever you want to be, however you want to get there. At Central Regional TAFE we will help you find your career, find your calling, find your start.

It all starts with short courses that give you a stepping stone, with qualifications that open doors right where you need them, with pathways towards degree courses and beyond. It all starts with teachers who know their field—and know how to share it well. It all starts with training programs developed for industry—and delivered alongside them. It all starts with flexible learning that meets you wherever you are—whatever your challenges. It all starts with a community of trainers and learners working together. It all starts with a fair chance—to make a go of the road you choose.

Because it is all about where you’re going. And it all starts when you choose Central Regional TAFE to help you get there. It all starts with options as big as our region — from Exmouth to Geraldton from Northam to Kalgoorlie — and then taking you anywhere in Australia or the world.

Greater in area than the Northern Territory, Central Regional TAFE has the largest geographical footprint of all the TAFEs in Western Australia, encompassing 1.55 million square kilometres, or 58% of Western Australia.

This footprint comes with some unique challenges in supporting students, staff and industry across a wide area of Western Australia, but also provides opportunities for a diverse set of training products to accommodate the distinctive geographical conditions associated with the central region of Western Australia.

Strong industry partnerships in the region have enabled the organisation to offer local, distinctive courses with over 9,000 students unlocking their learning potential in 2022.
