Well, come and see just how deadly it is at North Metropolitan TAFE. We have a great facility at 30 Aberdeen Street, Northbridge and our job is to make sure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students are fully supported during their time with us. We can assist you with information in a range of areas to do with your study including course enquiries, facilities, fee payments and instalment plans, referrals to external support agencies and pathway opportunities. 

We will put you in touch with the right people and ensure your time here is productive, successful and of course, fun.

Come and have a yarn
We’ll sit down over a cuppa and find out where you’re at, where you’re from, what you are looking to do, and then work out the best way for you to get there. You need to make sure that TAFE is the right place for you and that you choose a course that's right for you. 

Call us to have a chat, or fill in our online form and tell us a time that suits. We look forward to meeting you.
