The WA Government’s Regional Traineeship Program is now open to boost training, skills and employment opportunities across regional Western Australia.
The $2 million funding round is available to Community Resource Centres (CRCs) and eligible local government authorities (LGAs) to support trainees in regional areas.
Grants of up to $30,000 are available to go towards vocational training for local communities, based on business and industry needs.
The grant is to provide a one off payment to subsidise the cost of employing a trainee.
Eligible organisations will be invited by the WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development to lodge a grant application for the funding, with applications open for six weeks.
