Aged Care Workforce Vocational and Education Training Program

Page last updated: 13 February 2017

Important: 

The Aged Care Workforce Vocational and Education Training (ACWVET) Program ended on 31 March 2016.

The announcement to end the program was made in the 2015-16 MYEFO, as part of the Streamlining Health and Aged Care Workforce Program Funding measure. 

The decision to stop Government funding for the ACWVET Program was based on findings in the 2015 Stocktake and Analysis of Commonwealth-funded Aged Care Workforce Activities report. 

Funding for vocational education and training is provided by the Commonwealth through the National Skills and Workforce Development Specific Purpose Payments.  This funding is available to registered training organisations through state and territory education or health portfolio sources.
