How we can help
At Strive Employment & Training, we work with you to:

- help you select the most relevant courses for your company
- assist you with navigating off setting fees through government incentives.
We will help identify any skill gaps which may exist in your workplace and assist you in forecasting your future employment needs. As a not-for-profit training organisation, we then look at ways to secure government funding to contribute to your training costs.
In many cases, the majority of your training costs can be covered or offset through government incentives. With so many regular changes to funding at both state and federal level, it is sometimes difficult to navigate your way through the system. We can assist you with this as we work in the funding environment daily.
