The key role of the Department's website is to provide employers, business and industry and other stakeholders with useful and relevant information and resources that support the development of WA’s workforce. Also to provide information, tools and resources for practitioners, providers and schools that support the quality delivery and assessment of VET.
Since its launch in December 2016, the Department of Training and Workforce Development website at dtwd.wa.gov.au has received over 1,225,000 views. In April 2018, all information and resources for training and career development was moved from the dtwd.wa.gov.au and relocated to the Jobs and Skills WA website. Now it's time to review and refresh!
You’re invited to provide feedback. What’s great, what’s not? How could it be improved? What's missing? Please be specific and provide direct examples of any issue/s or suggestions for improvement – positive feedback is also welcome. All feedback will be treated confidentially, and used only for the purpose of informing the website review.
Please send your feedback to email@example.com by 29 March.
NCVER and Ipsos are conducting the survey on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.
The survey is supported by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) and the Western Australian Training Accreditation Council (TAC).
This Australia-wide survey of registered training organisations (RTOs) will provide a better picture of how many people are working in the VET sector to help with future planning and to better support the VET workforce.
Selected RTOs are invited to complete the survey, so keep an eye out for your invitation!
