Career Guidance & Support
If you’re aged between 45 – 70, employed or recently unemployed (less than 9 months) and not receiving Australian Government employment assistance, we can help.
Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers
At different stages of our careers we all experience the need to update our skill set. For older Australians, this can be a challenge in terms of finding the right skills and advice.
The Skills Checkpoint program is designed to help you find a new way forward. Run as an initiative of the Department of Education, Skills and Employment, the program is designed to help eligible individuals, aged between 45 and 70 years, to access support and guidance in their career. This includes career assessment, one-on-one career guidance with an advisor, recommendations to further skills training to support you in a current role, a new role, or help to transition to a new career.
You may also be eligible to receive a 50% co-contribution towards a training course to support your career development (co-contribution amount up to the maximum of $2,200).
Delivered across Australia by leading employment and training providers, VERTO and BUSY At Work, the program is tailored to your individual needs, ensuring that you can learn the skills to stay in the industry you’re in or find a new pathway, if required.
