Applications open for apprentice and trainee funding
Applications are now open for the 2019 Apprentice and Trainee Training Fund (User Choice), with $20 million available to subside the cost for training apprentices and trainees.
The fund provides grants to eligible Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) as a significant contribution towards the cost of providing quality training and assessment for more than 400 nationally-recognised qualifications in a wide range of industries for Tasmanian apprentices and trainees.
Only Skills Tasmania endorsed RTOs are eligible to apply.
The subsidies support the entry of Tasmanians into an apprenticeship or traineeship in their chosen occupation as well as allowing new apprentice or trainee jobs in areas where skills are most needed across the state.
