NACCHO has  just received confirmation that we have been given an extension to enrol for the National Workforce Development Fund Training.

Please pass this on to staff and networks urgently.

You would have received emails/NACCHO communique regarding $$$ available for this training late in May. 

You now have until the 25th June to reconsider taking advantage of this opportunity to up skill your staff, or enrolling additional staff if you want to take advantage of the current $4000 employer incentive available in some States and Territories, you need to enrol by the 25th June. 

 The enrolments will still be OPEN indefinitely, however the employer incentive will drop to  $3000.00 from 1/7/12.

 The criteria is that any staff employed by an ACCHS can enrol in Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management CHC60312  , Diploma of Management, Certificate IV in Frontline & Certificate IV in Training & Assessment.

 Only Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employees can enrol in The Certificate IV Practice and Community stream and the Ear and Hearing skill set.

 Also please be aware employees can ONLY enrol in 1 Qualification and 1 Skill Set ( 2 enrolments) 

 I have attached a blank enrolment form together with information about the training and the table which will indicate if the incentive is applicable to your State/Territory and the course you are interested in. 

 Please ensure that all SIGNED enrolment forms are sent directly to trainingplus.jamieson@gmail.com

 This project is funded under the National Workforce Development Fund.

 Where possible, the training delivered by Recognition First will be taken to the services so that students have onsite training -hence skilling up and building capacity of our workforce.

The courses available are:

·               Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management CHC60312,

·               Diploma of Management BSB1107

·               TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

·               Certificate IV in Frontline Management

·               Cert IV Practice (HLT43907)

·               Cert IV Community (HLT44007)

·               Ear and Hearing Skill set (HLT41307). 

Recognition First will only be undertaking the training of the Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management CHC60312, Diploma of Management BSB1107and TAE40110, Certificate IV in frontline & Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

 ATSIHRTONN members will deliver the training of the Cert IV Practice (HLT43907) and Community (HLT44007) and the Ear and Hearing Skill set (HLT41307). 

 I would like to bring to your attention those employers, whose staff are undertaking the Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management CHC60312, in NT & Victoria are eligible to apply to receive a Commonwealth incentive payment of $4000 for each student. (See attached Employer incentive chart)This will be paid in 2 instalments – $1500- 3 months after enrolment and $2500 upon completion.  

 The $4000 will assist the employer with their co payment for training which is $2200 (ie for Cert IV) and for a small administration fee from NACCHO. Services will be invoiced in three instalments for the $2200; the first instalment will be issued after one third of the training has been undertaken, 2nd instalment after two thirds has been undertaken and 3rd and final instalment to be paid upon completion.

 As you can see the ACCHS (the employer) will have the incentive payment available to them in order that they can meet the instalments payments. 

Please contact me if you have any queries, but send all enrolments directly to trainingplus.jamieson@gmail.com 

 Kind Regards
