WorkReady service provider Head Deed (Contract)

We have introduced a new contracting model to streamline contracting arrangements for WorkReady subsidised activities. Successful applicants will become WorkReady service providers and be offered a WorkReady Head Deed with the Minister for Employment, Higher Education & Skills.

The Head Deed provides one contractual arrangement that contains clauses common to all activities subsidised under WorkReady.

WorkReady service providers will receive a service agreement specific to the subsidised activity they are approved for.

WorkReady service providers may also apply for other subsidised activities, for example Jobs First Employment Projects.

Organisations who do not have a current Skills for All contract or are not an existing Strategic Employment Fund panel member may apply from 19 October 2015.

Head Deed Indicative Terms

Applying to deliver Jobs First Employment Projects

Applications for Jobs First Employment Projects opened on 18 August for current private Skills for All Training Providers and current private ​Strategic Employment Fund Providers.

Jobs First Employment Projects Applications closing date has been extended to noon on 28 September 2015.

Information about application(s)

  • A separate application will be required for each project.
