Industry Coverage

As one of 10 training councils covering the breadth of WA industry, we provide vocational education and training advice to the WA Department of Training and Workforce Development, and provide a conduit to and from industry with regard to their training needs.

Each year we contribute to the State Training Plan, a document that provides a planning framework for WA's vocational education and training system. The full report is located on the State Training Board's website.

The Department of Training andWorkforce Development is working cooperativelyand collaboratively with the training councils,industry, community, and government in creating a coordinated and strategic WA Workforce Development Plan for the State. Workforce Development is aimed at building, attracting, and retaining a skilled workforce to meet the economic needs of Western Australia. As part of this process the FAPSTC has developed a Workforce Development Plan for each of its industry sectors.

FAPSTC is keen to work with all stakeholders in developing a comprehensive whole of industry approach to Workforce Development.
