Australian Government Funding

Is your organisation missing out on funding that could assist in the development of training initiatives that could improve your bottom line?

Skills Connect is an Australian Government initiative to support Australian enterprises to plan for the skilling of their workforces. The Skills Connect Fund provides a single, simple access point to Australian Government co-funding for enterprise led whole of workforce skilling projects that meet identified workforce development needs.

Any training that is provided as part of a funding initiative must be from an industry endorsed Training Package. The training must be conducted by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) which is authorised to deliver the training for the nominated qualification in accordance with the VET Quality Framework.

To be eligible to participate in training, participants must:

  • Be an existing worker or a new worker, which includes a job seeker. Each proposal should include a written commitment from the employer stating that each new worker that completes the required training and/or support will be employed
  • Be an Australian citizen, or permanent resident of Australia, or humanitarian refugee eligible to work in Australia
  • Be a New Zealand passport holder who has resided in Australia for at least six months
  • Not have previously completed a qualification with the same vocational outcome for which they are applying.

Training provides a number of rewards for enterprises including a higher rate of return on training investment, increased innovation, employees realising their potential, higher levels of employee engagement and improved retention of staff. SysTec as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO no. 21443) is able to provide quality training programmes that address enterprise needs.
