DEVELOPMENT OF TRAINING FRAMEWORK
Flexibility and an understanding of our client’s needs are key features of the Training Alliance Group’s Programs. The concept of ‘one size fits all’ training no longer applies in today’s educational environment.
To ensure the Training Framework is fully customised to suit your needs, we would incorporate features based on actual workplace activities. We would meet with all relevant stakeholders prior to commencement of the training program to gather information relating to:
- Core business goals and corporate structure
- Any relevant workplace documents to incorporate into training
- Desired outcomes of the Training Program
- Development of Learning and Assessment Strategies
- Integrating the Training Program with current ‘in-house’ training and procedures
- Preferred Training/Assessment modes, equipment and resources to be provided by Training Alliance Group.
- Better trained workforce
- Less workplace incidents and accidents
- Improved staff retention
- Increased staff morale
- Increased staff productivity
- Incentives and payroll tax exemptions
- Training completed on the job
- Receive recognition of prior learning
- Earn a nationally recognised qualification
- Learning is self-paced
- Opportunity for career progression
QUALITY TRAINING CUSTOMISED TO YOUR NEEDS
Every TAG Trainer is qualified to a minimum of Certificate IV in Training and Education and has recent industry experience. Training will be tailored to the client’s worker group needs.
Our intention is to provide appropriate training resources and we envisage that our trainers will deliver training according to Australian Qualification Framework.
What is a wage subsidy?
Under the Federal Government’s Transition to Work (TtW) initiative, a wage subsidy is a payment that may be made to employers who employ eligible participants.
- The payment is made over 6 months.
- The payment is dependent on the employer partnering with a recognised employment services provider such as Stirling Skills Training.
How does a wage subsidy benefit my business?
You can use a TtW wage subsidy in a number of ways, all of which benefit your business.
- To cover any costs associated with recruitment
- To pay the cost of training the new employee
- To purchase any specialist safety equipment the new employee might need
- To cover part of the wage the new employee will receive
In addition to the subsidy, you get access to a pool of participants who want to work for you. The TtW initiative is voluntary with competent and trained participants who want to be part of the work force.
What kind of wage subsidies can I access?
There are four wage subsidies available to employers, based on the circumstances of the eligible* jobseeker:
- 1 – Youth Bonus Wage Subsidy (15-24 year olds) $10,000

The ‘Trial’ component of Youth Jobs PaTH provides young people with voluntary internship opportunities to help them gain real work experience in Australian businesses.
Employers can trial a young person in an internship for between 4 and 12 weeks to see how they fit into the team and if they are suitable for ongoing employment. Interns are unpaid by the business and receive a fortnightly incentive paid by the government.
The business receives an upfront payment of $1000 in recognition of the costs of hosting the internship. Additionally, the intern is covered by insurance paid by the Government through the Department of Jobs and Small Business. If our client is offered ongoing employment after the placement, your businesses may also be eligible for a wage subsidy.
NWEP ‐ National Work Experience Programme
The National Work Experience Programme offers work experience and employment opportunities for job seekers by providing unpaid placements with businesses for up to four weeks, to a maximum of 25 hours per week. It helps jobseekers gain experience and confidence, while demonstrating skills to potential employers.
