Funding for pre-employment training programs
If you are a training provider, industry association or community group you can apply for funding to deliver pre-employment training programs.
Pre-employment training programs give people practical skills to help them get a job, apprenticeship or traineeship.
Priority is given to programs that lead to employment in:
- occupations with skills shortages
- difficult to fill occupations.
