Plans to upgrade South Metropolitan TAFE’s Mandurah campus for $ 14.67 million are progressing. The project is now advertised.
The state-of-the-art hospitality and tourism training center is used to provide training in commercial cooking, tourism and event management and to offer career paths for budding chefs, event managers, baristas and on-site employees.
Hair and beauty training facilities will also be incorporated into the new center, increasing the number of students it will cater for.
The center will be a one-stop shop for simulated training on the Mandurah campus. The construction includes two training kitchens, a production kitchen and a restaurant as well as a new hairdressing salon and special training rooms for beauty therapy and massage.
The project was announced in July 2020 as part of the WA Recovery Plan, which includes a record $ 167.4 million investment to fund upgrades to essential infrastructure at the state’s five TAFE colleges.
Construction is expected to start in July.
As stated by Minister of Education and Training Sue Ellery:
“Mandurah’s new training center will provide industry-relevant training and create a workforce and highly skilled workforce for the growing hotel and tourism industry in the Peel region.
“The $ 14.67 million project is part of the WA Recovery Plan as part of the McGowan government’s commitment to economic recovery.”
As noted by Tourism Minister David Templeman:
“This will be a great facility for the Peel region that will help train professionals for meaningful jobs in our tourism and hospitality sectors.
“The students will take part in on-the-job training that will enable them to join the workforce directly in an important area of employment for young people in the region.”
