The State Government is to embark on a survey of the training needs of the Peel region.
Training Minister Kay Hallahan today announced the survey, which would identify training courses needed to match future community and industry needs.
"The best people to determine what training is needed are local businesses and community groups," Mrs Hallahan said.
"More than 1,000 businesses and 50 community groups will be asked to help forecast the region's post-secondary education requirements for the 1990's and beyond.
"Careful planning means the right courses are provided to lead local people to local jobs."
Mrs Hallahan said the information would indicate which courses should be offered by the planned new TAFE college in the region.
Results of the survey were expected by early 1993.
The research was being conducted by the Department of Employment, Vocational Education and Training, the office of Labour Market Adjustment and the WA Office of Higher Education in consultation with Industry Employment and Training Councils with particular interests in the region.
