Department of State Development

The Department for Industry and Skills plays a lead role in shaping South Australia’s economic future.

We are implementing a modern skills strategy that will ensure our investment in training is connected to real employment outcomes.

The Department will strengthen the funded training system to create focus, certainty and stability in the sector while promoting the value of a trade, boosting apprenticeships and encouraging entrepreneurship in the younger generation.

The South Australian Government is investing in skills development that will lead to real career outcomes.

Apprenticeship and traineeships

The South Australian Government is investing $100 million to deliver 20,800 apprenticeships and traineeships over four years. The Commonwealth Government has also unlocked $87 million through the Skilling Australians Fund to complement this investment.
