Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers


Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers is an Australian Government-funded initiative to enable mature-aged Australian workers and recently unemployed mature-aged Australians to remain in, or re-enter the workforce.

If you are aged 45-70 and at risk of losing your job or have been unemployed for less than 9 months, you may qualify for the Skills Checkpoint program.

Skills Checkpoint provides personalised advice and guidance on up-skilling for a current job, transitioning into new roles within a current industry or pathways to new careers, including a 50% co-contribution amount for relevant education and training (up to a maximum of $2,200).

Skills Checkpoint helps mature aged workers answer the question “What’s my next career move?”
