A Skills Tasmania Agreement will only be issued to Skills Tasmania Endorsed RTOs.
Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) wishing to apply for Tasmanian Government subsidies (funding) must apply to become an Endorsed RTO before applying for program subsidies.
Approved Skills Tasmania Endorsed RTOs are required to complete the Agreement and return it to Skills Tasmania. It will only be executed by Skills Tasmania if the Endorsed RTO receives funding.
Prior to submission; RTOs must ensure that the Agreement has been read and understood by the RTO's delegate who will sign the Agreement, and that every page, where indicated, is initialled and signed correctly, and witnessed if applicable.
The Agreement is for a period of three (3) years, up until 31 December 2017 and can be entered into at any time within the three year period, but must be in place if successful in gaining subsidies for any of the programs managed by Skills Tasmania.
Only one Agreement per RTO is required, i.e. per RTO Registration Number and only one signed and initialled Agreement needs to be submitted to Skills Tasmania.
The Agreement is valid for any applications submitted up to 31 December 2017. Funding applications, if successful, become a Schedule of Purchased Programs and forms part of the Agreement. These should be attached to the executed Agreement.
A signed, initialled, scanned agreement can be emailed to email@example.com or mailed to Skills Tasmania at GPO Box 536, HOBART TAS 7001.
Skills Tasmania also requires RTOs to provide Skills Tasmania with a Certificate of Currency for current insurance held.
Clause 8 of the Agreement outlines the requirements of insurance. Evidence of insurance can be emailed with the Agreement to firstname.lastname@example.org
If the Agreement is not signed, or initialled in the required places, and only part of the Agreement is submitted, then the Agreement will be sent back for completion, this may delay the issuing of Purchasing Contract IDs for claims and subsequent payments made to organisations.
