The Federal government announced the closure of its Industry Skills Fund program in late-December.
The program, which aimed to assist businesses to invest in training through the provision of skills advice and co-investment grants officially closed on December 31st last year, with no new grant applications being accepted from that date onwards.
Any business which already had a grant application approved prior to the Fund’s cessation will still receive any outstanding funds owing.
