Why choose TAFE?

More courses, more qualifications, more places to learn.
Full time, part time, on campus, online, in your workplace or any combination of these.

With over 980 qualifications to choose from, Central Regional TAFE offers a diverse range of training opportunities for the people of the Mid West, Gascoyne,
Goldfields and Wheatbelt regions.

Our flexible training options are designed to suit your lifestyle and learning requirements; whether you’re a school-leaver, stay at home parent, mature-aged apprentice or are looking to upskill or to advance your skills in your current job, we have what you need. 

From Certificate 1 to Advanced Diploma level, TAFE specialises in combining theory with practical training in industry relevant learning environments. This ensures you are well equipped with the skills you need to enter the workforce, gain a promotion or undertake further study via one of our university pathways upon completion of your qualification.

Our solid links and partnerships with industry, the community and employers provide job-ready training, facilitating a smoother transition to work. A diverse range of pathways are also available, offering opportunities for you to progress to higher level training or tertiary qualifications.

There really is something for everyone and no better time to join us on this exciting journey at Central Regional TAFE.

Excellent Assessment Practice

Assessments at Central Regional TAFE are designed to reflect real work place conditions to ensure that our students are job ready upon graduation.  In many qualifications assessments are actually undertaken in real workplaces.  If you are already working you may even be able to be assessed in your own workplace. 

Our assessments are regularly reviewed by lecturers, students and industry to ensure they are relevant and are being implemented appropriately via a rigorous validation process.   There is also a process in place for students to appeal an academic decision.  More information about this process can be found here.
