The State Training Plan 2018–2021

The WA State Training Plan 2022–23

Section 21(1)(a) of the Vocational Education and Training Act 1996 requires the State Training Board to provide a State Training Plan for the Minister’s approval. The plan is a key strategic document that sets out the training needs of the State’s industries and how those needs should be met by State Government investment in vocational education and training.

The Minister for Education and Training endorsed the State Training Plan 2022-23 in January 2022 to guide the State Government’s investment in VET over the next two years. 

Led by the industry-backed State Training Board, the plan outlines eight priorities to guide a well-funded, responsive and innovative VET sector that supports the strategic development of the State's industries and the economy.
