Jobs & Skills Centre

About Jobs & Skills Centre

As part of the WA Government’s move to amalgamate all its funded career and employment services under one banner, both Directions Workforce Solutions’ contracted Career Centre and our Aboriginal Workforce Development Centre (AWDC) have had a name change and are in a new location.

Both the Career Centre and the AWDC now come under the one banner of Jobs & Skills Centre as part of the broader Jobs & Skills WA.

The Department of Training and Workforce Development has also asked us to relocate our Jobs & Skills Centre services to premises at Central Regional TAFE in Hutt Street Northam.

Our team is made up of local people who have considerable knowledge and experience in the region and local communities, expertise in Aboriginal workforce development, and with working with local employers.
