Training programs to support local jobs, grow local business and encourage emerging industries

Newcastle's economy is changing, and we as a community need to adapt along with it.

That’s why the City of Newcastle is releasing funding for training providers under our NewSkills program – to assist Novocastrians and local businesses gain and develop their talent in emerging industries or areas of rapid change.

We’re looking to fund training programs in areas like:

  • helping local businesses get up to speed in the digital age
  • ways to make businesses more accessible for everyone in the community
  • how businesses in the hospitality and tourism sectors can build a more resilient business model
  • ways to improve your company’s energy efficiency
