The Federal government has launched a $10 million program that will provide West Australian high school graduates with a fully funded 12 month traineeship to help grow WAs defence workforce.
The Defence Industry Pathway Program, developed in partnership with South Metropolitan TAFE and the State’s maritime defence industry, is a “taster” course designed to set participants on a path to an exciting defence industry career. The pilot program will support 120 students by mid-2022, with the first cohort of 20 set to begin in July.
The LDSC, in partnership with the Utilities, Engineering, Electrical and Automotive (UEEA) Training Council, is pleased to see the announcement of the Pathway Program having been actively involved in the development of this initiative.
