Training and Work Pathways Program

2018 round opens Monday, 7 August 2017

The Department of State Growth invites eligible organisations to apply for funding to support opportunities for people experiencing disadvantage and barriers to participation in post-compulsory education and employment.

$2.37 million of funding is available for innovative projects that can include the delivery of training; research that identifies need, barriers and prospective vocational pathways; and partnerships between community organisations, industry and training organisations to enhance VET and employment options for disadvantaged Tasmanians and expand and sustain learning opportunities.

For more information including objectives, eligibility and the application process please download the Program Guidelines below.

The application process will be open from 9 am (AEST) Monday, 7 August and close at 2 pm (AEST) Tuesday, 12 September 2017. It will be conducted via an online grant application service, powered by the SmartyGrants platform via the browser of your choosing. The application form can be accessed at:

To best support users, the Department advises applicants to complete the open text responses of their application in a Word document before transferring it to the online form. To assist in this, a template has been produced to help you complete your SmartyGrants application. The template can be downloaded below.

As the Program supports projects with varying degrees of complexity and risk, applicants will be required to complete and upload two templates – C9 Project and Risk Management Plan and D1 Budget Template – in addition to the online form. Links to these templates can be found below.

Three 45-minute program information sessions will be held to potential applicants to hear about the program design, the application form and allow them to ask questions. The sessions will be held online via Go To Webinar.
