The Minister for Education and Training, Hon. Sue Ellery, has released the Strategies to grow apprenticeships and traineeships in Western Australia.
The paper supports the McGowan Government’s revitalisation of the Western Australian training system. It provides an overview from the State Training Board’s state-wide industry consultation and offers interim and long-term recommendations to grow apprenticeship and traineeship numbers in Western Australia.
