Rapid Response Skills Training Support Funding
To support Tasmanians in these challenging times, Rapid Response Skills Training Support funding is available to help redeploy people who have lost their job as result of the impacts of COVID-19.
The Rapid Response Skills Initiative is designed to assist you to reskill or upskill, and connect to jobs in industries where there is immediate and emerging demand.
Support up to $3,000 is available for career advice and training if you have lost your job because:
- you have been made redundant
