New technical college to open

Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said it would be great to see a new education service provider in Armadale, after the original Australian Technical College closed in 2013.

“As one of Western Australia’s fastest growing local government areas, we need education and training facilities in the heart of Armadale,” he said.

“It is positive to see training providers recognise this immense population growth and provide crucial training for our growing community.

“The ATCWA will be of great benefit for our residents, in particular our young population, providing access to quality education and improving employment prospects locally and regionally.”

ATCWA is currently taking enrolments for a number of courses including: Course IV in Business, Diploma of Business, Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management.

The first term will begin in February.

More courses – including hospitality and trades – will become available during the year. For more information and to apply online, visit or call 6196 2709.
