Funding available to upskill aged care staff

Published

West Australian aged care providers are being encouraged to apply for funding to develop tailored training to meet their organisation’s needs under a new state-government initiative.

Under WA’s Enterprise Training Program, individual residential and home aged care providers in the state can apply for up to $200,000 and a consortium of providers can access up to $300,000 to identify skills gaps among staff and work with a registered training organisation (RTO) to develop training.

Under a second new initiative, the Pre-Traineeship Program, aged care providers can apply for funding to supervise placement for students and later access the graduates, all of whom have been screened for suitability to work in the sector.
