Defence

"We've been using a lot of metals and different tools and machinery, and it builds hand-eye coordination" - Isaac shares his experience with a Heavy Fabrication Pre-Apprenticeship.  

TAFE works in close partnership with the defence industry to service its expansive need for trained personnel. Training is often customised to meet the needs of this industry. Pathway programs are in place to provide sustainable links between schools, TAFE, higher education and the defence sector so that current and future defence needs are met and a strategy of attract, train, retain and re-train is adopted to build capability in the sector. TAFE training staff consult extensively with key industry stakeholders so that a whole-of-workforce development approach is adopted to deliver the right skills at the right time. 

In addition to full qualifications, South Metropolitan TAFE offers a number of Defence short courses
