What is Jobs and Skills WA?

As Western Australia’s economy grows and diversifies, the outlook for jobs is constantly changing. Jobs and Skills WA is the way the State Government, through the Department of Training and Workforce Development, prioritises its investment in training to focus on courses that equip people to take up jobs that are, or will be, in high demand.

The Department of Training and Workforce Development has appointed Sterling Business College to the Preferred Provider Panel for Priority Industry and Participation Program (Job Seekers) Training to deliver funded training services.  The courses are listed  below.

What are my Payment Options for the course fees?

The following payment options are available to you:

  • present a signed authority from an employer for Sterling to invoice that employer for your course fees;
  • pay your course fees by instalment – this option is available to students and is negotiated on an individual basis.

You may make application on the grounds of severe financial hardship for your course fees to be waived. (Fee waivers are not available for our Diploma programs). Each Severe Financial Hardship claim is assessed on an individual basis.  You will need to complete a fees waiver application form (available from the college) and also provide evidence to demonstrate the following:

  • You must have a Department of Human Services’ low income health care card.
  • You do not have the disposable income to pay the fees via instalments without compromising your ability to meet their basic living needs or those of your dependents.
  • There is no basis for concluding that your financial circumstances are likely to change within a reasonable period (e.g. 12 months)
