REGIONAL EMPLOYMENT TRIALS PROGRAM

GRANT DETAILS

RDA is delighted to one of 10 RDA Committees partnering with the Australian Government’s Department of Jobs and Small Business to deliver the Regional Employment Trials Program (RETP) in the Townsville Employment region which covers Burdekin, Charters Towers, Hinchinbrook, Mount Isa and Townsville. (Other parts of our region are covered by the Community Development Program and hence projects that are based in these areas will not be eligible for the RETP as well.)

The objectives of the program are to deliver:

  • strong connections between regional stakeholders, including employment services providers
  • employment initiatives that meet local needs
  • improved awareness of local labour markets
  • the potential for improved regional employment outcomes
