The new year is underway, and it’s the ideal time to consider your study options for the future! ✨✨

Disability support is a fast-growing sector in WA, and there is a high demand for qualified care workers with attractive employment opportunities.

If you want a career where you can empower people to reach their full potential, then make 2024 the year to be more and gain your free qualification in disability support.

SM TAFE graduate Natalie reached her goal of becoming a qualified disability support worker and gained employment – all within the same year!

Thanks to a State Government initiative that offers the CHC33021 Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) qualification fee-free*.

Natalie gained the specialist knowledge in health and community services she needed at SM TAFE by learning in training facilities that simulate real-life workplace settings.

Read more about Natalie’s story and how you can strive for your most rewarding career yet! 👉

*Note: tuition fees are 100 per cent subsidised by the WA Government for WA residents. Tuition fees are free, but resource fees may be payable for some courses. Please see the FAQs on our Skills Ready page for further information.

Be more and forge a future in fashion at SM TAFE. 🪡👩‍🎓

Follow in the footsteps of SM TAFE graduate turned lecturer Henrie!

Henrie left her home in the UK to embark on fashion studies at SM TAFE as an international student and completed three nationally recognised qualifications.

In the past eight years, she has seen her career dream become a reality, becoming qualified in the field, working at a couture bridal brand, having photoshoots grace the pages of magazines and making a mark on the industry.

In 2021, SM TAFE grabbed her back so that students could learn from her exceptional artistry, and she is now part of our fashion lecturing team! 🌟

Fashion at Bentley campus is one of Perth’s leading fashion design institutions with an excellent success rate of graduates, including previous employment placements at Zhivago and One Fell Swoop, amongst other Western Australian labels.

Big wheels are turning in mining and heavy auto training 🚒….and it was a monumental day when SM TAFE received the donation of a Sandvik underground truck from mining service employer Barminco Ltd.

The vehicle has served its time in the mines, and now its purpose lives on. In the next 5 years, over 5,000 apprentices will be exposed to the truck, gaining job-ready skills to enter the mining and heavy auto industries.

Fun fact - the refurbished truck is worth a whopping $1.8 million new!

Under the guidance of expert lecturers, apprentices gain hands-on experience at the Heavy Vehicle Mechanical Training Centre at our Thornlie campus.

Thanks to Barminco for providing this valuable donation to the SM TAFE Heavy Vehicle Mechanical Training Centre, which will leave a legacy in training WA’s next generation of mining and heavy auto workers. 🌟

SM TAFE recently hosted esteemed guests from the Royal Oman Police Coast Guard Division for an immersive five-week (24-day) study program at our Fremantle Campus.

Their feedback? Exceptional! 🌟🌟

Both participants thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from this bespoke program recognised by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and both intend to continue collaborating with SM TAFE.

The program also provided refresher training in our world-class training simulators for electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) and the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS).

The Royal Oman Police have visited our Maritime facility once previously in 2019. SM TAFE tailored an upskilling Maritime training program for two Captains, and both have since excelled in Officer roles within the Oman Coast Guard.

Our commitment to tailored, high-quality Maritime training has gained international recognition, and our partnership with the Royal Oman Police is a testament to that. We're thrilled about the possibilities ahead! ⚓

Our amazing students are adding a touch of magic behind the scenes at Telethon7 Perth as budding makeup artists! 💄

The students studying the Diploma of Screen and Media (Specialist Makeup) worked behind the scenes to apply makeup to numerous TV personalities, singers, performers and, of course, the Telethon kids.

SM TAFE lecturer Manuao used his industry connections to organise this exciting opportunity, providing a fantastic industry experience for the students.

Working at Telethon is just one example of the many opportunities the students have throughout the year. They’ve had a chance to work at prestigious venues such as the Regal Theatre and Crown Theatre, and next up is the upcoming SM TAFE fashion show!


A qualification in business can be a springboard to a range of career options! 💻📱🎓

Follow in Addison’s footsteps and open the door to employment in virtually any industry.

SM TAFE student Addison started her business studies with a Business Skillset. As a young student, she was unsure which path to take. Addison enjoyed the learning environment at SM TAFE and the business focus and content, so she is now completing a Certificate III in Business (Administration).

The Certificate III in Business is a perfect starting point for students who do not know which path to take. It is also an excellent platform for progressing to the Certificate IV in Business or a Diploma of Business.

Whether you're looking for a job or thinking about a career change, now is the time to set yourself up with business skills for life!
