Investment $49 million
Our training system is at the heart of Victorian jobs and economic growth. In a changing economy, we need to do all we can to give workers and students the skills and confidence they need to get a stable job in a growing industry.
What will the money be used for?
This investment includes:
Back to Work Reconnect program
$20 million for the Back to Work Reconnect program to support young people and early school leavers to undertake foundation training, and provide participants with fee relief and Victorian Training Guarantee exemptions.
$14 million to provide a structured way for industry and employers to examine emerging skills needs across the economy and new industry priorities.
The Budget also provides $53 million for the establishment of Jobs Victoria. Jobs Victoria will help people find employment more quickly, so they don't drop out of the job market.
