Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program

To fill a gap in the services currently available to older Australians, the Australian Government funded a national rollout of the Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program (the Skills Checkpoint Program). The Skills Checkpoint Program is based on a model that was piloted by the then Department of Education and Training from 2015 until 2016.

Eligible individuals are those aged 45 to 70, an Australian citizen or permanent resident, employed and at risk of entering the income support system, or recently unemployed (within three months) and not registered for assistance through an Australian Government employment services program.

The Skills Checkpoint Program is directly linked to the Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business Skills and Training Incentive (the Incentive).

The Incentive is available from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2020 for up to 3,600 participants per year.

The Incentive will provide eligible participants with up to $2,200 (GST inclusive) to fund suitable training (accredited or non-accredited). The government contribution must be matched by either the participant or their employer.

To be eligible for the Incentive, individuals must have completed a Skills Checkpoint assessment that identified training linked to their current job (e.g. upgrading skills), a future job opportunity, or an industry, occupation or skill in demand.

You can find out more information about the Skills Checkpoint Program, including how to apply, through the providers listed on this page
