​WORK IN AGRICULTURE SKILL SET FREE FOR ELIGIBLE STUDENTS

The McGowan Labor Government has unveiled a comprehensive $57 million package for the training sector that will deliver 15 free short courses and slash course fees for thousands of Western Australians, as part of the WA Recovery Plan.

Developed in consultation with industry, the 15 free short courses or ‘skill sets’ will provide a launch-pad for students to up-skill for new jobs and provide pathways to full qualifications.

The Work in Agriculture Skill Set, to be delivered at Muresk Institute by South Regional TAFE, targets specific skill requirements for agriculture and rural employment.

This skill set is free for eligible students, including displaced workers, concession students and youth up to 25 who are not at school.

The units completed in the skill set can be used as a credit towards a full qualification.

Face-to-face training will be delivered at Muresk in two blocks:
• Block one: 31 August – 4 September (5 days)
• Block two: 9 September – 11 September (3 days)
