1Overview

The Energising Tasmania Training Fund (the ET Fund) is a key output of the
Project Agreement for Energising Tasmania.

The first round of the ET Fund provides Endorsed RTOs fully subsidised training places to deliver nationally-recognised qualifications to workers in areas of priority skills needed to support the Battery of the Nation initiative and more broadly energy, infrastructure and related sectors in Tasmania.

It is open to Endorsed RTOs working in partnership with employers to deliver the training.

To access the ET Fund, Endorsed RTOs will follow processes consistent with two existing Skills Tasmania funding programs: Skills Fund and Apprentice and Trainee Training Fund.

Under the ET Fund, Endorsed RTOs will be eligible to apply for non-tuition cost support - up to the value of $1000 per learner.

Future rounds of the ET Fund will be revised on the basis of the evaulation of this round and as new information emerges on the skills priorities for the energy, infrastructure and related sectors in Tasmania.

The approved qualifications for delivery and the published rate per approved place under the ET Fund will be listed in the Guidelines for this program. The published rate will be the same for both application streams.

The current list of qualifications will be reviewed upon completion of the first funding round in consultation with key stakeholders.

4Applying for the Energising Tasmania Training Fund

Endorsed RTOs must follow the processes consistent with the two application streams for the ET Fund:

  • Energising Tasmania - Skills Fund.
  • Energising Tasmania - Apprentice and Trainee Training Fund.

The application process will require applicants to address a number of criteria and providing supporting evidence (as appropriate to each application stream). The criteria are focused on the need for the training and alignment to the Energising Tasmania agenda.

Through the application process for each stream, Endorsed RTOs will be required to itemise costs associated with the provision of the non-tuition cost support per learner.

Future rounds of the ET Fund will be revised on the basis of the evaulation of this round and as new information emerges on the skills priorities for the energy, infrastructure and related sectors in Tasmania.

Timing of release is to be determined.

Guidelines will be made available upon opening of the grant program.
