Round 2 of the Energy & Infrastructure Workforce Development Fund and Energy & Infrastructure Training Market Development Fund are now open.
Up to $450 000 is available for workforce development projects and up to $765 000 is available for training market development projects. Applications for workforce development funding close on 23 September 2021 and applications for training market development funding close on 30 June 2022 (and will be assessed and allocated monthly).
The workforce development fund will fund projects addressing workforce development priorities identified by the Tasmanian Energy and Infrastructure Workforce Advisory Committee and relevant workforce development plans. Increasing workforce diversity is a new priority included in Round 2.
The training market development will fund registered training organisations to increase their capacity to delivery training, including new trainers, courses and programs, in qualifications relevant to the future energy industry. The list of relevant qualifications was recently increased form 15 to 105, and can be increased by application where there is industry support.
