Rapid Response Skills Initiative

The Rapid Response Skills Initiative (RRSI) provides up to $3000 towards the cost of training for eligible people who have lost casual, full-time or part-time work in the last 12 months due to retrenchment, downsizing or business closure.  This includes self-employed people (sole-traders or partners in a partnership) who have closed their business.

RRSI funding can be accessed by an eligible applicant or their spouse up to a total of $3000:

  • to pay for training, including licences, to improve job prospects, and/or for careers advice to explore possibilities and help choose the best employment and training options.
