Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers
Do you employ older workers who need some assistance to continue or change their career? This new government-funded program offers mature workers personalised, one-to-one assistance to find a pathway to their future career.

If you’re:
• Aged between 45 and 70; and
• An Australian citizen or permanent resident; and
• Employed and at risk of redundancy

We can provide your staff with personalised advice and guidance on upskilling for their current jobs, finding new careers, or help them discover options for further education and training.
What does the program involve?

Skills Checkpoint offers a way of helping your employees find a pathway to a new or changed career, including potentially upskilling for roles within your business. As an added benefit, your staff may be eligible for a Federal Governments Skills and Training Incentive, which contributes to training and education fees for program participants. Your staff will work closely with a Career Advisor on their work experience, strengths and preferences, and undertake individually tailored assessments to identify career and skilling options to develop a personalised Career Plan, including:
• Skills they can develop to get a new job or new career;
• Skills they could enhance to increase their ability to perform in their current role;
• Advice and recommendations about skills and training options.

Eligible participants may access up to $2,200 (GST inclusive) as a co-contribution from the Australian Government to fund re-skilling or up-skilling opportunities.
