In this case, your business needs to demonstrate a training-fund investment during the previous 12 months to the equivalent of at least 2% of the payroll. This investment is made through payments allocated to an industry training fund relevant to your business.
Victory University's Scholarship Fund has been approved by the Department of Home Affairs as a recognised scholarship fund.
You may contribute through Training Benchmark A to Victoria University’s Scholarship Fund if your business meets the necessary requirements.
Training Benchmark A:
- benefits companies seeking to employ a non-Australian citizen
- suits recently established businesses
- allows employers to fulfil training-benchmark obligations immediately.
The training-fund study area must correspond to the skill shortage that your business is seeking to fill. For example, if you are a law firm sponsoring an IT specialist, the study area will need to be IT.
Check if we offer industry-relevant courses by searching in our course finder.
