Strong Start Cadetship Program
The NSW Government has announced a new, $1.6 million Strong Start Cadetship Program, through which the Department of Planning and Environment will be providing councils with grants of $25,000 to fund planning cadets’ university tuition of any new planning cadets.
Councils can also use the funding to upskill existing council staff who are not working as planners.
The funding aims to
- encourage councils to onboard additional cadet planners and develop them into more senior roles
- grow more planners in regional areas where the planning skills shortage is most severe
- help planning graduates gain practical work experience while increasing the capacity of council planning teams.
Applications close at 5pm on Friday 9 June 2023.
