Smart and Skilled is an initiative of the NSW Vocational Education and Training (VET) system. It is helping people in NSW get the skills they need to find a job and advance their careers. Under this initiative there are also opportunities for companies & workers to potentially access funding in the attempt to reduce possibility of redundancy, increase business growth and promotion.

Sureway Skills Training (SST) is an approved provider to deliver Government funding for the formal training component for traineeships for courses listed on SSTs scope. Most traineeship qualifications for trainees who are new entrants are subsidised under Smart and Skilled.

SST also has Smart and Skilled funding to deliver part qualifications. This process requires a Training Needs Identification (TNI). TNIs are skills sets consisting of 1 to 8 units of competency that provide pathways to employment for job seekers and provide essential qualifications for workers at risk of unemployment and/or may create a promotion.
