JobTrainer Skills Package

Jul 17, 2020

The Australian Government will invest $2 billion to give hundreds of thousands of Australians access to new skills by retaining and upskilling them into sectors with job opportunities.

The package consist of:

  • The new $1 billion JobTrainer program to provide up to an additional 340,700 training places to help school leavers and job seekers access short and long courses to develop new skills. Courses will be free or low cost in areas of identified need, with the Australian Government providing $500 million with matched contributions from state and territory governments.
  • An additional $1.5 billion will expand the wage incentive program to help keep apprentices in work. This builds on the initial $1.3 billion package announced in March. In addition to small businesses already covered, the wage subsidy will now be available to medium businesses with less than 200 employees for apprentices employed as at 1 July 2020.
