How does the PALM scheme skills development program work?

The PALM scheme skills development program provides workers from the Pacific and Timor-Leste with access to training while they are living and working in Australia.

The program benefits both workers and employers by improving workers’ technical knowledge and abilities and increasing general business productivity.

Funding is available for PALM scheme employers participating in both the SWP and the PLS. The funds contribute to the costs of both accredited and non-accredited training for workers, covering employability and life skills, job skills and formal qualifications.
