Support for Mature Aged Workers
Mature aged workers make a valuable contribution in Australia and their experience and skills are important to retain. With today’s ageing population, this is becoming increasingly apparent.
The Skills Checkpoint program offers career assessment and skills funding to assist mature age workers to transition or remain in the work place.
With a one to one consultation with a career advisor, a career assessment process and then access to funding to upgrade skills, this program will support you to continue your valuable contribution in the work place.
If you are aged 45-70 and are still employed or unemployed less than 9 months and not receiving Australian Government unemployment benefits, you may qualify. (Please note: Due to the impacts of Covid-19, the Australian Government changed the time of unemployment from less than 3 months to less than 9 months. This came into effect on 3rd August 2020).
