  • What do you think needs to be done to improve the skills of your industry?

  • Have you had any issues with finding the right staff member?

  • Have you found it difficult accessing training?

  • If you are an RTO, what do you think is needed to improve qualifications? 

These are the things we need to know so that we can tell the WA government. 

Our Job

Is to ensure that the Minister for Education and Training and the WA Government is fully informed on the workforce and skills needs of the food, fibre and timber industries.  We do this by advising them of workforce skills and training issues impacting businesses.

We then advocate for policies and strategies that will help our industry source the right people with the right skills so that they can grow and prosper.

So Have Your Say and let us know your thoughts about how to improve the skills of your industry.

"We find it really difficult to get experienced log truck drivers.  Some drivers think that because they've driven trucks up in the mines, that they know how to drive log trucks.  But it is a different skill all together, particularly in the loading and unloading of the logs".

"I want to know where my apprentice is up to at TAFE, so I can make sure that it connects a bet better with what he's doing in our workshop.  At the moment it's all a bit ad hoc. 

"Our clients are telling us that we need to deliver more content on environmental sustainability.  They believe that there needs to be more training on the use of finite resources, energy and water consumption, and safe disposal of waste.  They are saying that their workers need to be upskilled in these areas but the current training package doesn't focus on this to the degree that they are saying they need".
