Other subsidies

Subsidies are available for a range of non-accredited activities.

Skilling South Australia Projects

Through the Skilling South Australia initiative, we’re supporting an additional 20,800 apprenticeships and traineeships over four years.

Funding is available for projects that drive apprenticeship and traineeship growth in the state.

Applications are invited from organisations and businesses, including Group Training Organisations, training providers, industry associations and businesses in need of apprentices or trainees.

We’re particularly interested in attracting high quality projects that:

  • boost regional apprenticeships or traineeships
  • support strategic industry sectors, such as defence, information technology, cyber security and disability services, or
  • assist specific cohorts, such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander job seekers, women in non-traditional trades or long-term unemployed job seekers into apprenticeships or traineeships.

Read the project guidelines and supporting documents before submitting your application.

To apply, see Apply for funding.

If you have any questions, see the SSA Projects enquiry form.

You can apply for up to $50,000 for innovation, development and/or research projects that assist in building capability and capacity, share learnings with the VET sector and collaborate closely with industry partners.
