Skilling South Australia projects

Skilling South Australia projects are Government-funded, co-designed projects with business and industry that will drive apprenticeship and traineeship growth.

The Department for Innovation and Skills is seeking applications now, which will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout 2019-20, subject to demand and budget availability.

The Department welcomes project applications that:

  • increase regional apprenticeships
  • kickstart growth in apprenticeships within a business or occupation
  • support strategic industry sectors (such as defence, information technology, cybersecurity and disability services) and meet key skills shortages and needs
  • demonstrate innovative approaches or new models that can be trialed and adopted more broadly to support an industry sector
  • transition sectors with historically low use of apprenticeships
  • target specific cohorts where there is traditional under-representation in the industry.

We have a flexible approach to what can be funded, provided there is a demonstrable connection to apprenticeship commencements.

Employers are critical to successful projects. Applications are invited from individual businesses or organisations in need of apprentices.

There are four types of projects we’re interested in:
