Centacare Employment and Training is a not-for-profit, registered training organisation, (RTO), established in 1976. We are an agency of the Catholic Archdiocese of Perth, however, our services are available to any member of the community without prejudice or discrimination.
We deliver flexible education courses and fully accredited industry training programs specifically for disadvantaged and/or marginalised members of the community who are looking to learn new skills or obtain the qualifications necessary to go on to further study, training or employment in a particular field or industry.
We welcome Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians as well as migrants from all over the world. Our students include young people, mature age people, those with a disability or other challenges who are looking for an opportunity to continue their education, obtain job-ready skills or the qualifications necessary to enter a particular area of study or employment.
Our courses are delivered by passionate, highly qualified and experienced teachers and trainers, tailored to the individual needs of each student. Classes are practical, fun, interactive and available from seven locations across the Perth metropolitan region, including Gosnells, Cannington, Midland, Perth, West Perth, Mirrabooka and Joondalup.
