The Territory Labor Government is building a skilled and versatile workforce with a new $6million training package to attract 1000 regional and remote Territorians into new apprenticeships and traineeships.
Businesses based in regional or remote parts of the Territory will receive a $3,000 employer incentive for every new apprentice or trainee they take on from December, under the $3million Employer Incentive Program.
The incentive can be used to cover the costs a business incurs when taking on new apprentices and trainees, up to 10 apprentices or trainees per employer.
It is designed to get Territorians into a job, help businesses improve local capability and drive economic development in the Territory.
Another $3million has also been injected into the User Choice program to assist registered training organisations (RTOs) to deliver training for apprenticeships and traineeships in regional and remote parts of the Territory.
The funding aims to increase the level of training delivered in regional and remote areas and unlock new opportunities for businesses to invest in new apprentices and trainees to build their workforce.
