Enter through the main entrance of the TAFE. We can provide a private meeting room and client computers for all registered clients.

Situated in the Northern Wheatbelt, Northam is the largest regional centre, only 96 km from Perth, and identified as one of nine ‘Super Towns’ due to its capacity to offer opportunities to diversify and decentralise WA’s projected growth.

The Northam Jobs and Skills Centre provides outreach to the country townships of Moora, Badgingarra, Merredin, Brookton, Quairading, Wongan Hills, Bruce Rock, Toodyay and Dalwallinu. 

Welcoming people from all walks of life, the Northam Jobs and Skills Centre provides free professional and practical advice on training and employment opportunities including: careers exploration, job search and applications, and apprenticeship and training information.

We also provide business assistance including workforce development advice, apprenticeships, traineeships and partnerships with industry.
