Access up to $2,200 to fund suitable education and training

Specifically designed for older workers aged 45-70, VERTO’s Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers (Skill Checkpoint) program provides eligible Australians with assessment, advice, and guidance on transitioning into new roles within their current industry or pathways to a new career, including referral to relevant education and training options to get you there.

We’ll work with you to build a career plan, find the right training options, and then work with you to reach your employment goals.

Even better, if you are eligible you can access up to $2,200 (GST inclusive) to fund your education and training.
