How are you travelling?

We are continuing to provide the WA government with updates on the impact of COVID 19 on businesses within our industry.

  • We are letting them know of any changes in business and employment levels

  • And what people are telling us about things that would help them as they head into recovery.

  • Are there any training needs that you are emerging because of changes to your business.

Our information has helped the government in providing support services as well as assisting RTOs to respond to specific skill needs.
