Shock Proofing the Future of Work: Future Skills Centre investing $15 million in innovative projects to support workers in hard-hit sectors
The Centre will continue to launch open calls for proposals to invite applications from stakeholders across the country with projects that develop, test, and evaluate innovative approaches to skills development.
All projects will be rigorously evaluated and the evidence generated will contribute to a growing research base of what works in skills development, for whom, and under what conditions.
