Training and Professional Development

The MWOA recognises there is a need for the Local Government sector to address the future of having and retaining a skilled workforce, to sustain a high level of quality service delivery, for all stakeholders.  For some time there has been a shortfall in the area of specific training for the Local Government sector, i.e. Certificate III and IV.

  • The Federal Government offers an incentive for training to the value of $3k, but there are specific pre requisites for this incentive, and if you fill out the Employee Analysis Form (PDF) and return to the MWOA or TME, (one per student) we will submit on your behalf and notify you of any entitlements

  • The Federal Government entitlement is valued at $3k payable on the student on completion the course

  • The fee payable by council to the MWOA is $1,500.00

  • If a student does not qualify for the grant the fee payable to the MWOA will be $4k

  • The course can be completed in 12 months

  • The course has a class set at 12 students, if the council has less than this amount we set up Cluster Group Training involving the surrounding councils

  • Training options include “Seasonal Delivery” tailored for council (one shoe does not fit all)
