Eligible participants for the incentive may access up to $2,200 (GST inclusive) from the Australian Government to fund re-skilling or up-skilling opportunities. Your organisation’s website content does not mention that either the participant or their current employer must match the Australian Government contribution.
You may be able to obtain the Incentive in relation to training that we provide. However, we do not facilitate the Program and Incentive, and nor can we advise you about your eligibility. Eligibility for the Incentive is subject to completing a Skills Checkpoint assessment and Career Plan that identifies suitable training opportunities, which you will need to discuss with your Program Provider. Your Skills Checkpoint Career Plan may identify suitable training opportunities that are not offered by us. Please also note that you or your current employer must match the government contribution, up to the value of $2,200 (GST inclusive).
