This content was published on Wednesday 10 May 2023. There may be more recent updates available.

From 1 July 2024, the Australian Government is providing $436.4 million over four years for a redesigned Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) program that improves access to foundation skills training for all Australians seeking to improve their language, literacy, numeracy and digital literacy (LLND) skills, enabling them to actively participate in the economy and society.

The redesigned SEE program will be delivered through a mix of national and local solutions to improve access and delivery, including providing specific place-based First Nations-led support for First Nations people. 

The redesigned program will also support projects within workplaces for workers who face insecure work challenges as a result of low foundation skills.    

The redesigned program delivers on the Government’s commitment from the September 2022 Jobs and Skills Summit to reinvigorate in partnership with states, territories and stakeholders, foundation skills programs to support workers and vulnerable Australians to gain secure employment choices.

The redesigned SEE program will continue the delivery of high quality LLND training to individuals currently provided by the Skills and Training Portfolio foundation skills programs:

More formation on the redesigned SEE program will be made available in future.
