The ageing population, ageing workforce and roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) have placed an unprecedented demand on service delivery and the requirements for a skilled workforce. North Metropolitan TAFE works closely with partners including Brightwater, Hall & Prior, Juniper and WA Blue Sky to produce skilled graduates ready to join the workforce.  

We also offer dual qualifications in partnership with Hall and Prior Health and Aged Care Group, combining CHC33015 AA66 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) with HLT33115 AA72 Certificate III in Health Service Assistance (Acute Care).

North Metropolitan TAFE is offering qualifications in direct client care to meet the need for skilled personnel to help support our ageing population or work with people with a disability.

We partner with enterprises and consortiums to apply for funding in training workers to fill current skills gaps and future workforce requirements through traineeships and skill sets.
