New Skilling Australia's Defence Industry Grants Program Launched

The new Skilling Australia’s Defence Industry (SADI) Grants provide businesses servicing the defence sector with upskilling and training opportunities to build skills capacity and capability to meet current or future Defence needs.

The program aims to:

  • reduce barriers faced by Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the defence sector when upskilling or retraining staff
  • develop skills within SMEs in the defence sector
  • support SMEs in the defence sector to establish human resources practices and training plans that will build lifelong learning activities into their business

What do you get? 

A grant between $5,000 and $500,000 to undertake various defence skills training activities.

Who is this for?

  • Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that currently have a Defence contract, are tendering for one, are a subcontractor to a defence prime or contracted through the Prime's supply chain to deliver on defence projects.
  • Defence industry associations training their own staff or facilitating training to businesses they are representing.
