WA Defence Industry Workforce Office

A key action included in the WA Government’s Western Australian Defence and Defence Industries Strategic Plan 2018, was the establishment of a centralised defence workforce office within SM TAFE. The office was established to lead a coordinated and collaborative approach to the development of a WA defence workforce and oversee and advise on defence-related skilling matters. The work undertaken by the WA Defence Industry Workforce Office (WADIWO) will help shape education and training activities so that industry will have a workforce with the right skills at the right time. This work has equipped SM TAFE to understand and respond to the skills and competencies required for the various maritime defence programs the state will attract.
