JobTrainer

 

 

ACT and Commonwealth Governments have agreed to an extension and expansion of the JobTrainer Fund, providing an additional $16.75 million to support critical skills training in 2021 and 2022. This means approximately 2,500 free training places will be available over two years; the final number of places is contingent on the uptake of full qualifications and short courses.

JobTrainer offers free vocational education and training in employment growth areas for job seekers and young people, aged 17-24 who have left school. JobTrainer 2.0 has also expanded eligibility in four focus areas, allowing all Canberrans over 17 years of age access to a training place regardless of employment status, in aged care, early childhood education and care, disability care and digital skills.

This is one of the ways the ACT Government is supporting jobs and the economy during COVID-19.
