Outline

The Training and Skill grants being offered are funded by the Broken Hill Community Foundation in conjunction with a gifted endowment from Broken Hill Skillshare.  The Grants have been set up to enhance career opportunities for school leavers, those who are unemployed or retrenched, or who are working in a casual or part-time position.

The objective of the grant program is to encourage a person to pursue a course of study in a field which will benefit their future job opportunities. The successful applicants will be those wishing to upgrade their skills or qualifications in the pursuit of paid employment.

Each grant will be provided on an individual basis to meet the requirements of the applicant. Grants will be offered twice yearly prior to the commencement of educational semesters.

The grant applicants will be assessed by a sub-committee panel and the decision of that selection panel will be final.
