The Department of Industry is not currently accepting or processing applications for the Skills Connect Fund, while the Government is reviewing funding arrangements ahead of the Federal Budget in May 2014.

The Australian Government is working to deliver an Industry led skills and training system.

The VET reforms are focussed on ensuring Industry has a skills system that is responsive, streamlined and outcome driven.

The Government is committed to skills and training delivering jobs and productivity, not training for training’s sake.
