Apply to deliver a Skilling SA project

Funding is available for projects that drive apprenticeship opportunities or help young South Australians transition from a course to further education and employment.

Skilling South Australia Projects

Skilling South Australia Projects continue to support apprenticeship opportunities for South Australians, providing exciting career pathways, backed by strong partnerships with industry and training providers.

The Department for Industry, Innovation and Science is currently seeking Skilling South Australia Project applications that support apprenticeships and traineeships in key South Australian industries, including:

  • hi-tech and digital
  • food, wine and agribusiness
  • tourism
  • defence and space
  • creative industries
  • energy and resources
  • health, medical and social care (e.g. aged care and disability).

Skilling South Australia Projects will also focus on apprenticeship and traineeship commencements for individuals and groups traditionally under-represented across all industry sectors.


Applications are invited from individual businesses or organisations with an ABN.

Applications open 15 March 2022 and close 30 September 2022, with training contracts to commence on or before 1 March 2023.

SSA Projects funding is subject to demand and budget availability. Applications may close earlier if the budget is fully subscribed.
