Job Trainer is currently the number 1 Government initiative to support Australian business. What it could mean to your business and your employees.

Under the Job Trainer program, the Australian Government has recently invested $2 billion targeted at financially assisting employers via wage subsidies, and funded training to fill job vacancies with trainees. This program provides thousands of Australians access to new skills and upskilling them into sectors with job opportunities, as the economy recovers from COVID-19.

The Job Trainer skill package will guarantee thousands of traineeships employed at businesses with less than 200 employees across the country by subsidising their wages to keep them in their training jobs. This subsidy covering 50 per cent of trainee wages, up to $7,000 per quarter is designed to support school leavers and job seekers to develop new skills to grow sectors and create pathways for growth.

In addition to wage subsidies, traineeship courses will be low fee or fully funded in areas of identified need, as the Australian Government funding contributions are being matched from state and territory government.

Sureway is committed to supporting employers within NSW, and SA to facilitate these programs by providing skilled candidates with a desire to take on traineeships.

In working with many organisations to recruit trainees, one of the key issues is the employer not having an opportunity to choose from a pool of skilled candidates. Sureway is now offering a custom training solution tailored to meet your staffing needs.

Over the years we have helped numerous companies in custom designing funded training programs, facilitated by our qualified and experienced trainers. To support your needs, we can offer this service at your facility or ours whilst presenting employers with a pool of potential candidates for their traineeships. In addition, being a Registered Training Organisation, Sureway Skills Training can also manage your selected candidates entire training program at no cost to the employer and with potentially little to no cost for the trainee.

This Job Trainer program is essential as the economy rebuilds so that people looking for employment can upskill for jobs that are in demand, will provide school leavers with pathways to careers, and will ensure businesses are able to get the skilled workers that they need.
