The Industry Skills Fund (the fund) is an Australian Government programme that provides eligible businesses with access to training so that they are better placed to succeed in a rapidly changing economy. Offering over 250,000 training places and support services for industry, the fund is targeting SMEs, including micro businesses, which are preparing to take up growth opportunities outside of their normal day-to-day business operations.
The fund is a key part of the Australian Government’s programme of vocational education and training (VET) reform to lift the quality of both training providers and their courses, enhancing the contribution VET makes to the employment prospects of students and Australia’s economy.
Large businesses and businesses repositioning due to market driven structural adjustment are eligible to apply.
