The Equipment and Capital Grants are part of the South Australian Government’s investment of $9 million over 3 years, to build capability and capacity for TAFE SA, not-for-profit and industry-based providers.
The grants will support the delivery of contemporary or state-of-the-art infrastructure, equipment, and technology aligned to industry needs in our state, and will seek to support with:
- higher retention and VET completions for South Australian students
- increased access to and delivery of foundation skills training
- delivery of training in regions, particularly where capacity is currently constrained, and
- innovative training products and delivery (including new technologies), particularly in response to local and emerging skill needs.
Why the investment?
The South Australian Government continues to invest in the state’s vocational education and training (VET) system to skill South Australia’s workforce for today and the future.
The South Australian Skills Outlook identified over the next five years an estimated 90,500 VET qualifications will need to be delivered to meet South Australia’s demand for skills.
