Central offers around 400 nationally accredited training courses across a wide variety of training areas and is the primary deliverer of higher-level technical and professional qualifications within Western Australia.

​Once again the Perth International Student Festival brought out the best in Central students with volunteers and participants making it a day to remember.

There were activities galore surrounding the Perth Cultural Centre to celebrate the cultural diversity that international students bring to Perth and Central alike.


​Central’s art graduates and lecturers continue to enjoy success in sculpture with their work again featured in the 10th annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition.

Sculpture by the Sea features 74 sculptures from local, interstate and international artists spread out along and around the Cottesloe coastline.

This year features exhibits from former Central Students Kathy Allam and Helen Seiver and Senior Art lecturer and acclaimed sculptor Tony Jones.
