Government Funding for Older Workers

New funding for 2022

Funding has again been allocated by the Australian Government for 2022, and has announced the Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program and Skills and Training Incentive is again active, Meaning, you may be eligible to get up to 50% off your RPA certification training – up to $2200 in funding!

What is the Incentive?

The Australian Government, through its Skills and Training Incentive (Incentive), is providing up to $2,200 (GST inclusive) to fund training to help mature age Australians to update their skills and remain in the workforce longer.

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).

Who is eligible?

You are eligible for the Incentive if you:

• are aged 40 and over?
• are an Australian citizen or permanent resident?
• are currently employed OR recently unemployed (within nine months) and not registered with an Australian Government employment services provider?
• have completed a Skills Checkpoint assessment that identified training opportunities through the Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program (Program)?

You can find out more information about the Incentive and the Program by visiting the Department of Education, Skills and Employment’s website at https://www.dese.gov.au/skills-checkpoint-older-workers-program and https://www.dese.gov.au/skills-and-training-incentive

If eligible you may be entitled to use this funding to put towards remote pilot certification. You pay half, and the funding pays the other half (up to $2200 GST Inclusive)
