The Department of Employment, Skills and Workplace Relations (the department) has asked the Social Research Centre to conduct research into the Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program and the Skills and Training Incentive.
Over the next few months the Social Research Centre will be talking to people who have done the Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program and people who have received the Skills and Training Incentive. They will also be talking to employers who have paid the co-contribution for the Skills and Training Incentive. Some people will be invited to complete a survey between 2023 and 2024.
If you have been contacted about this research and would like to check this information, you can contact the National Customer Service Line between AEDT 9 am and 7 pm, Monday to Friday.
Participation in this research is voluntary. Information collected through these processes will only be used for research and evaluation purposes.
This research will inform the department’s evaluation of these programs. The evaluation aims to measure the impact, appropriateness and effectiveness of these programs. More information on the department’s approach to employment services evaluations, including the previous evaluation report and findings, is available at the Employment services evaluations hub.
