CHANGES TO TAFE IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA
The Western Australian TAFE system is undergoing key changes.
The former 11 TAFE institutes and their 70 campus locations are now managed by a network of five TAFE colleges.
These changes will have minimal impact on students. There will be no change to training courses offered or course locations.
Students should follow their enrolment instructions and attend classes at their current campus as normal.
Please see below for the new TAFE structure in Western Australia.
