Equipped for Work reimbursements of up to $1,000 are available for new workers commencing a Training Contract after 7 September 2018.
Individuals and their employers, including Group Training Organisations (GTOs), can apply for funding to support the commencement of an apprenticeship or traineeship.
Applicants will need to demonstrate that support is needed to meet the costs of goods and services required to commence a Training Contract.
Pre-approval may be granted prior to the purchase of goods or services, with reimbursement made once a confirmed Training Contract (or Letter of Offer) is in place and purchase 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.
Training contracts being supported through a Skilling South Australia Project are not eligible for Equipped for Work.
