Do you have mature-age staff who are in need of upskilling?
The Australian Government, through the Skills and Training Incentive (Incentive), provides up to $2,200 (GST inclusive), per person, to co-fund training to help mature age Australians to update their skills and remain in the workforce longer.
The Skills and Training Incentive (the Incentive), directly linked to the Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers program, provides an opportunity for employers to update the skills of their older workers, increasing their productivity.
To retain and develop staff, businesses need to invest in training and reskilling. The Incentive provides an opportunity for employers to reduce the costs of updating the skills of their older workers and ensure their business is better able to adapt to change.
