An application is received once a customer completes (i) their registration stating their personal details and considers themselves eligible to apply to the Transition Training Fund, and (ii) a training proposal that will help them towards alternative employment. Once complete a SDS Adviser will contact the customer to provide guidance on how to complete and provide evidence to support their claim to the Transition Training Fund.
Decisions made include applications where the customer is approved for funding for training and also where the customer's application is unsuccessful. Where a customer's application is unsuccessful a customer may re-apply to the Transition Training Fund. Unsuccessful applications can be the result of the customer withdrawing their application to reconsider their training proposal, the customer not maintaining contact with an SDS adviser for more than 6 weeks, or where a customer cannot evidence their eligibility. In all cases, an SDS adviser will support the customer as far as possible with their application to the Transition Training Fund.
Approved applications are successful and result in the customer receiving funding for their training proposal. When an application is approved an SDS adviser accepts the evidence of personal eligibility submitted by the customer and agrees that the training proposal submitted enhances the likelihood of the customer gaining employment. Before an application is approved a customer must also confirm they agree to the awarded funding for the approved training.
