Local skills development in regional and remote NT
The Northern Territory Government is building a skilled and versatile workforce with a new $6 million training package to attract 1000 regional and remote Territorians into a new apprenticeship or traineeship.
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 $3 million Employer Incentive Program.
The incentive can be used to cover the cost a business incurs when taking on a new apprentice or trainee, 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.
