Dismiss your second thoughts; managed by professionally trained staff and operated by the students themselves, you’ll soon discover fantastic opportunities to improve your wellbeing, look as wonderful as you feel, satisfy your inner soul, or enjoy the spoils of future culinarians.

It’s a win for you, and our students. Talk to us today. 

Please note The Australian Government announced that many venues would be closed or restricted. This has led to NMTAFE closing some of our facilities. 

North Metropolitan TAFE's purpose-built gallery is a significant feature located in the heart of Perth’s cultural area and the entertainment precinct of Northbridge. The gallery, the centrepiece of creative industries at North Metropolitan TAFE, showcases the many talents of our students and other professional artists.

Graduation exhibitions as well as local, national and international events are also hosted in this prestigious venue.

The Artist-in-Residence at 149 Beaufort Street, Perth is home to visiting designers and artists who contribute to the education programs at North Metropolitan TAFE. The artists conduct public programs such as talks and workshops for students and the wider community.

Massage clinic

The Remedial Massage clinic at 30 Aberdeen Street is run by our Diploma of Remedial Massage students, and is fully supervised with a qualified massage therapist available to answer any questions.

What to expect
On your first visit to the clinic, you will be asked to complete a comprehensive medical history form, as well as a disclaimer stating that you are aware that a student will be giving the massage treatment session. At the completion of the massage, the student will invite you to complete a feedback form. Please use this opportunity to give constructive feedback on their strengths and weaknesses, to allow the student to learn fully from the experience. Treatments are performed by students only.

What to wear
Ideally loose, comfortable clothing makes for easy undressing for your massage, as well as doing any stretches that our student therapists may ask you to do. But if you are attending the clinic after a day at work, that is quite ok too.

Appointment changes
If you are unable to make your booked appointment, please be courteous and cancel it. Also, if you are late for your appointment, please understand that your treatment time may have to be shortened accordingly. 

The cost of a massage ranges from $15 for a 30 minute chair massage, $30 for a 60 minute remedial session, to $45 for a 90 minute session.

Gift vouchers are available. 

We accept EFTPOS only. 

Appointment times
Wednesday          1:30pm - 6:30pm
Thursday               1:30pm - 6:30pm
Friday                    10:00am - 3:00pm

Sessions are a mix of both relaxation and remedial style massages.

Foyer Oxford

The Foyer Oxford is a project being run In conjunction with Foundation Housing, and Anglicare in Leederville. It aims to provide secure quality accommodation and pathways to employment, education and training for young people.​​​​Foyer-vertical-colour-RGB_1.jpg

Foyer Oxford provides opportunities for young people ready to make a commitment to move on with their lives — a commitment to further education and training, and being a full participant in Foyer and all that it involves. Every person has an individually tailored commitment and plan. The young person signs it and so do the project partners.
Participants can stay in the Foyer project for up to two years. It's not a short-term crisis centre — it's for long-term building of young people's lives. The successful model is based on having a complete range of services on site.   Every young person has their own self-contained unit so they don't have to share kitchens, laundries or bathrooms. It is about creating a positive community.

Foyer originated in France and has been taken up throughout Europe and the United States. This world class complex is located on Oxford Street in Leederville. It has the capacity to house and support 98 young people, including 24 young parents and their children. It is the largest single site homelessness service for young people in Australia.
Foundation Housing built the accommodation and became the landlord; Anglicare is project manager, and provides the personal and community life skills support; while North Metropolitan TAFE contributes the education and training component.
The project is possible thanks to funding from State and Federal Governments under the National Affordable Housing Agreement, and Lotterywest.
