Government Funding – The Mid-Career Checkpoint program

Up to $3,000 is available to support enrolment in accredited training for eligible participants.

The new Mid-Career Checkpoint program supports eligible carers who are looking to return to the workforce or advance their career. Currently, a pilot program is being run in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland.

This is an Australian Government initiative to assist people who have spent time out of the workforce undertaking caring responsibilities and are now looking to return to paid employment. It also supports carers who have recently returned to paid employment and would like to advance or change their career.

Eligibility requirements include:

  • live in one of these states and
  • have been out of the paid workforce for six months or more and  
  • are undertaking caring responsibilities and
  • are looking to return to work or advance your career or
  • are an existing worker in a Designated industry. 

Accredited training programs offered by My CPE can be found here.
