What is “WorkReady”?
WorkReady is a South Australian government initiative that brings together funding for training, employment and skills activities. WorkReady is about targeting training and employment opportunities to the needs of people, strategic industries and regions. Individuals need to meet course entry requirements and verify their eligibility for enrolment before being enrolled in a government subsidised training place.
What Does WorkReady Offer?
WorkReady has been designed so that students, job seekers, employers, industry, the training sectors and government have the flexibility to respond to changing social, geographic and economic circumstances and opportunities.
The Government wants people to be in the best position to successfully complete their training course or employment project and move into higher level qualifications and/or a job.
