JobTrainer is a $88 million investment by the state and federal governments in skills and training to support school leavers, job seekers and young people, including those affected by COVID-19.

JobTrainer is prioritising training in industries where there is high demand for skilled workers such as aged care, disability care and childcare; and in new and emerging sectors, such as cyber security, ICT, defence industries and the creative industries.

Training delivery will be a mix of short courses, and qualifications with bespoke delivery aligned to sector needs to support entry and re-entry to the workforce including through traineeships and apprenticeships.

Courses will be low fee in areas of identified need. A course list will be available coming weeks and accessible here.

JobTrainer complements Skilling South Australia, which is creating new jobs and pathways through apprenticeships and traineeships. JobTrainer will target upskilling and industry entry through skills development to fast track job seekers into priority sectors as the economy begins to recover and grow.
