What is JobTrainer?

JobTrainer TAS is a joint undertaking by the State government of Tasmania and the Federal Government. Together they are providing $21.04 million for new VET (vocational education and training) opportunities for the citizens of Tasmania.

New workers and school leavers will greatly benefit from JobTrainer TAS, plus thousands of Tasmanian apprentices will have their wages subsidised. This will secure their employment and training for the full term of their apprenticeship.

What courses are being funded in Tasmania?

JobTrainer TAS is focusing on growth industries, or where there are skill shortages. The industries include health care, community service, retail and wholesale, manufacturing, postal, transport and warehousing, but more may be announced in the coming months.

Free and subsidised training will vary according to skill shortages in the different geographic regions of Tasmania. Courses will range from nationally recognised Certificate I to Advanced Diploma qualifications — as well as short courses and skill sets that support licences and work permits.

How much will the courses cost?

Eligible courses under JobTrainer Tasmania will be either free or heavily subsidised.

Who is eligible for JobTrainer

To qualify for a free or low cost course under TAS JobTrainer you must be: a resident of Tasmania, aged 17-24 years of age or currently unemployed (this includes people who are new to the workforce or need to re-skill after losing their job) or receiving an income support payment (eg, JobSeeker, Austudy, Youth Allowance).
