AgSkilled is the first of its kind. It's a $14.7million NSW Government funded industry led workforce development strategy, aiming to ensure NSW's Cotton and Grains industries have a skilled workforce, capable of meeting the challenges of the future.
What Can AgSkilled Fund?
AgSkilled is administered under NSWs Smart & Skilled program. AgSkilled can subsidise the cost of Full Qualifications (Cert I - Advanced Diploma) on the NSW Skills List and fully subsidise the cost of Part Qualifications (units taken from full qualifications).
AgSkilled funded training is available to those with a genuine interest in NSW's cotton or grains industries, subject to Smart and Skilled eligibility requirements. It's also available to those genuinely looking to join either industry including school leavers, jobseekers and those looking for a career change.
