The Skilling South Australia Equipped for Work initiative supports individuals and employers, including Group Training Organisations (GTO), by reimbursing them for the costs of goods and services essential to starting an apprenticeship or traineeship.
Funding is available through reimbursements of up to $1,000 made directly to an eligible apprentice or their employer.
Equipped for Work is available for new workers commencing a training contract after 7 September 2018.
Pre-approval is available to support Individuals, Employers and GTOs. Pre-approval may be granted prior to the purchase of goods or services, with reimbursement once a confirmed Training Contract or Letter of Offer, plus receipts have been provided.
Applications for reimbursement must be made within 90 days of Training Contract commencement. Pre-approved applications will remain valid for up to 90 days from the pre-approval date.
Applicants will need to demonstrate that support is required to achieve the commencement of a Training Contract by providing a description of the goods and services, how the cost of goods and services is preventing the commencement of an apprenticeship and purchase receipts.
Training contracts being supported through a Skilling South Australia Project are not eligible for Equipped for Work.
