The Victorian Government recently launched a new $40 million Workforce Training Innovation Fund (WTIF).

The WTIF provides grant funding for industry and training provider partnerships to develop and deliver innovative strategies for improving training outcomes and the relevance of training to industry.

Please contact Antoinette Hewitt for assistance to progress ideas and develop project proposals.

Two types of funding are available now

Grant funding is available for industry and training provider partnerships and can include consortiums. Grant proposals up to $5 million will be accepted for consideration.

Grant funding is available across four interrelated categories:

  • Future growth sectors
