Training for 150 agriculture workers supported

The Tasmanian Government is committed to supporting our north west agriculture employers to find and train new staff, creating new jobs and opportunities for Tasmanians. 

The North West Agriculture Skills Delivery program will provide 150 existing agriculture workers with access to training and provide agricultural businesses with advice on vocational education and training, with the aim of helping to create a culture of training and development in Tasmania’s north west agriculture sector.

The funding, through Skills Tasmania, will assist organisations to identify training opportunities for the workforce and facilitate participation in training pathways, helping to address current and future workforce needs.

The North West Agriculture Skills Delivery program is part of the $3.9 million North West Job Ready Generation Package that is generating more jobs and apprenticeship opportunities throughout north west Tasmanian communities.

Organisations can apply from 10 January 2022, with applications closing 7 February 2022.
