Energy and Infrastructure Training Market Development Fund
The 2020 Energy and Infrastructure Training Market Development Fund (TMD Fund), a Department of State Growth (the Department) program to support Tasmania to build a skilled workforce equipped with the expertise needed for major energy, infrastructure and related initiatives, opens on Friday 16 October 2020. The Program will close at 2pm on Friday 5 February 2021.
The TMD Fund is a key output of the Project Agreement for Energising Tasmania.
The TMD Fund provides grants to training organisations to increase training capacity and undertake other projects that respond to the training needs of Tasmania’s energy and infrastructure sectors.
The TMD Fund aims to provide an equitable spread of grants across regions, target groups and challenges – as identified by relevant stakeholders.
Specifically, the intention of the TMD Fund will be to increase training capacity relating to energy and infrastructure and other support projects endorsed by the Tasmanian Energy and Infrastructure Workforce Advisory Committee.
Applicants are strongly advised to ensure they read the Program Guide before completing an application.
Future rounds of the TMD Fund will be revised on the basis of the evaluation of this round as new information emerges on the workforce development priorities for the energy and infrastructure sectors in Tasmania.
To be eligible to apply, applicants must be:
- An Endorsed Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and/or an RTO who may be willing to undertake the endorsement process (and demonstrate eligibility for Endorsed RTO status) to deliver accredited training under the Fund
- An organisation carrying work in partnership with an RTO
- have an Australian Business Number (ABN).
If the applicant is a government instrumentality, statutory authority, government business enterprise or state-owned company, they must be able to demonstrate in their application that the project activities do not relate to the agency’s core business.
The objective of the Energy and Infrastructure Training Market Development Fund is to increase the Tasmania’s training capacity to support the energy and infrastructure sector through qualifications and other projects identified by the Tasmanian Energy and Infrastructure Workforce Advisory.
