Details on the application process and eligibility for the New Enterprise Scheme:
Your application for the RMIT NEIS Program is in two parts:
- Complete the ‘RMIT NEIS Business Proposal’ (see below) This proposal explores your business idea by asking you to tell us about your reasons for starting a small business, your industry experience, market research undertaken and your suitability for small business and readiness to commence trading.
- Complete an ‘Application for NEIS’ form (see below) if you receive a centrelink payment
Complete a ‘Direct Registration Form’ (see below) if you are unemployed but not registered with or not receiving a payment from centrelink. Once you have completed the relevant forms please scan them both and email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
A hard copy of the forms can be obtained by contacting the NEIS office on 03 99252933 or email@example.com
If you wish to mail through your application please post to:
The RMIT NEIS Program
GPO Box 2476V
Melbourne VIC 3001
The NEIS office will contact you within 5 working days by phone or email, with feedback on your application or to schedule an interview.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) is available if you are approved for the RMIT NEIS Program. You will need to provide adequate and satisfactory evidence to support your application prior to commencement of training. However, we strongly recommend you undertake the whole program as it has a major impact on your business plan.
If you have any questions regarding the application process please contact the RMIT NEIS Program.
Eligibility to the NEIS Program is open to people who are registered with centrelink and in receipt of a centrelink payment and to people who are not currently receiving a centrelink payment.
