About the grant
Skill Shortage Solutions grants support projects that tackle skills shortages in key areas including defence trades, cookery, bricklaying, concreting and saw technology.
Projects collaboratively address skill shortages at an industry, sector, regional or workforce level through partnerships to develop and pilot industry informed, customised, or localised skills solutions.
A core feature of successful projects is strong partnerships across relevant industry bodies, professional associations and unions, regional and community organisations, employers, and training organisations, working together to develop and implement solutions.
The next round of Skill Shortage Solutions grants for 2023-24 will open in coming months.
