Is your organisation required to fulfil obligations under Training Benchmark A?
RMIT can help you meet these obligations and provide scholarships to help students develop careers in your industry.
What are training benchmarks?
Training benchmarks were introduced by the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection to ensure that the employment of workers from outside Australia was not at a cost to training Australian workers.
If your organisation employs people who are not Australian citizens or permanent residents, you are required to make a financial contribution to training in your industry under either Training Benchmark A or Training Benchmark B.
About Training Benchmark A
RMIT can help your organisation meet the financial obligations for Training Benchmark A.
Training Benchmark A applies to businesses operating in Australia who do not employ any Australian citizens or permanent residents. If the business has been in operation for over twelve months, it must pay the equivalent of at least 2% of its current payroll expenditure to an industry training fund.
