Skills Checkpoint for workers aged between 40 and 70

Specifically designed for workers aged over 40, Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers (Skills Checkpoint) program provides eligible Australians with assessment, advice, and guidance on transitioning into new roles within their current industry or pathways to a new career.  This includes referrals to relevant education and training options to get you there.

Even better, if you are eligible you may be able to access up to $2,200 (GST inclusive) to fund your education and training.

Eligibility criteria include that you must be:

  • aged 40 years or over (previously 45–70),
  • an Australian citizen or permanent resident,
  • not registered for assistance through an Australian Government employment services program.

Delivered across Australia by leading employment and training provider,  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.

Mid- Career Checkpoint Program

The Mid-Career Checkpoint Program is an Australian Government initiative that provides a free skills and employment assessment to help you to identify your training, employment and career goals.

The program provides you with a tailored Skills, Training and Employment Plan that details your goals and identifies your personal and professional attributes and your skills and qualifications, as well as any skills gaps. It also provides you with information on local employment and training opportunities you can apply for.

There’s also a Training Incentive of up to $3,000 to help you undertake recommended accredited training.

And if you need a little more support to step back in to paid work or step up your career, you can access career coaching.

If you live in New South Wales, Victoria or Queensland, contact the service provider in your state to find out if you’re eligible.
