The Western Australian Government has recently launched the Lower Fees, Local Skills program, helping to reduce the fees of TAFE courses in priority industries, starting from January 2020.
There is a total of 34 courses affected, including in the nursing, aged care, disability support, hospitality, tourism and engineering sectors. Fees will be cut by 50%.
By lowering fees, they are hoping to attract more people to industries with high job growth.
If you have been thinking about doing any of the above courses, now could be the perfect time.
