What is JobTrainer Northern Territory?
JobTrainer is a government funding scheme that offers low-cost training courses so Territorians can upskill or reskill in areas with strong employment growth.
JobTrainer was created to help people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially young people , school leavers and job seekers. After its first round, JobTrainer support became accessible to all Australians, regardless of age or employment status, for particular qualifications in fields with a significant need for skills.
Upon enrolment, course fees are paid directly to the training provider.
