Govt Provides $15.2 million for NBN Training Services
Thursday, 5th July 2012 at 11:09 am

Some 36 communities across Australia will receive $15.2 million to establish local NBN training services as part of the Gillard Government’s Digital Hubs and Digital Enterprises program.

The successful applicants will operate 24 Digital Hubs and 20 Digital Enterprise programs to highlight the opportunities of the National Broadband Network (NBN).

These programs will:

  • help individuals in local communities improve their online and digital literacy skills
  • assist local residents to understand the opportunities created by the fast, affordable and reliable broadband delivered by the NBN
  • work with small businesses and Not for Profit organisations to develop their online presence and take full advantage of the NBN

The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, said residents and businesses in these communities will learn about the opportunities and benefits of fast, affordable and reliable broadband, as well as get training and advice about how they can use the NBN.

“Programs like these are important so that everyone can learn and gain confidence in the online opportunities made possible by the NBN,” Senator Conroy said.

“The Gillard Government has committed a total of $23.6 million in funding to establish Digital Hubs and Digital Enterprise training services in 40 of the first communities to benefit from the National Broadband Network.”

There are several communities where the grant funding process is continuing and announcements regarding these communities will be made due course.
