This Week’s Highlight: Panel opportunity for RTOs

Funding for youth education is always a topic of contention. Whether it’s university fees, the viability of TAFEs, apprenticeship programs, there’s always something up for discussion. This week we look the Foundation Skills for Your Future Program, a program that was announced by Government as part of the $585 million Skills Package ‘Delivering Skills for Today and Tomorrow’. This program sees the Government investing $52.5 million over four years to support eligible Australians develop their Language, Literacy, Numeracy and Digital literacy (LLND) skills. The ultimate aim being to help them up-skill or re-skill for new roles, to obtain and retain secure employment and to undertake further education and training.

To enable this program, the Department of Education, Skills and Employment has issued a Request for Tender (RFT) to refresh the Foundation Skills for your Future Panel of trainers. The department is seeking LLND skills training specialists who can deliver the following types of projects:

– RTO Personalised Training projects: A client centred approach providing tailored Accredited LLND Training and/or Non-Accredited LLND Training through flexible delivery modes that accommodate the learning needs of the Participant; and/or
– Employer Workplace Training projects: An employer or industry-specific workplace training project developed in collaboration with the employer or industry organisation and a Service Provider to deliver tailored Accredited LLND Training and/or Non-Accredited LLND Training for the workplace.

This panel is only open to Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) who have delivered LLND training in 2019. Services can be offered on either a national, state or local region basis and existing panelists do not need to reapply unless they wish to expand their region of service. The appointment to the panel will be for an initial period of 2 years with potential for extension up until mid 2023. An industry brief webinar will be held on the 21 May 20 and this RFT closes on 9th June 2020.
