Question

I refer to Legislative Council question on notice 2354, regarding the Regional Traineeship Program, and I ask:
(a) please provide a full breakdown of the $2 million by funding recipient and other expenditure if applicable;
(b) were any of the applicants not successful in their application; and
(c) if yes to (b):
(i) which applicants were not successful; and
(ii) on what grounds was each not successful?

Answered on 24 October 2019

  1. The Regional Traineeship Program (RTP) was launched on 23 January 2019. Disbursement under the RTP for the 2018/2019 financial year resulted in 55 successful recipients at $30,000 per traineeship, for a total of $1,650,000. See table 1 for RTP by funding recipient.

The previous traineeship program, the Western Australian Community Resource Centre Network (WACRN) traineeship program, closed on 19 September 2018. For the 2018/2019 financial year, Grant funds were also disbursed under the WACRN program. Some of the $2 million was utilised for the WACRN program before full transition to the RTP.

For the 2019/2020 financial year, the full $2 million is available for the RTP.

No administrative costs are attached to this funding budget.

b) – c) Yes. As a result of the competitive funding round, seven applicants were not successful. Three of the applicants were not successful due to the funding available for the 2018-19 round being exhausted. The remaining four applicants were not successful due to shortcomings in the applications, including that the application did not link the type of traineeship to the needs of the community, contained little or no content, did not demonstrate how the trainee would be developed and mentored, or did not demonstrate how the traineeship would provide a robust experience.
