About us

North Metropolitan TAFE is the established State Government provider of vocational education and training for the northern Perth region.

The organisation originated from the recent merger of the former West Coast Institute of Training and Central Institute of Technology. This merger is a result of key changes that have been made to Western Australia’s TAFE system, which will ultimately deliver new choices to students, industry and the community of Western Australia.

North Metropolitan TAFE now has ten campuses located across the greater north metropolitan region in; Balga, Clarkson, East Perth, Joondalup (Kendrew Cr and McLarty Ave), Leederville, Midland, Mt Lawley, Nedlands and Perth (Northbridge).

With approximately 1300 staff and over 400 full time courses, North Metropolitan TAFE delivers skilled graduates in occupational priority areas such as Community Services, Education, Hospitality, Business, Engineering, Building & Construction, Health Sciences and Creative Industries.

More details on the reform project are available from The Western Australian Training Sector Reform Project Report.

The Governing Council is the ultimate authority at North Metropolitan TAFE, with its role to oversee operations and affairs.

North Metro TAFE’s Governing Council  is comprised of a Chairperson, Deputy Chairperson, Managing Director, and ten other members appointed by the Minister for Training and Workforce Development. Each Council member has been selected for their experience and expertise in education, training, industry or community affairs, and for their ability to contribute to the strategic direction of the Institute.
