Training Subsidy

The Wheelhouse, on behalf of the TSB Community Trust,  are able to offer subsidised community training for voluntary, community & not-for-profit organisations.  This subsidy operates at two levels:

  • individual attendee subsidy;
  • subsidy for training programmes

Individual attendee subsidy:
Staff, board members or volunteers of voluntary, community or not-for-profit organisations operating wholly or significantly within the Taranaki region may be eligible for a subsidy towards the cost of training not already covered by a subsidy.  Examples may include national or regionally significant training outside of the region.  The training must be relevant to the governance of your organisation. 

This subsidy does not cover the costs of conference attendance, First Aid training, travel, accommodation or incidental expenses 

Applying for a subsidy:
Applications need to be submitted at least three weeks before the training event to ensure they can be processed in time. 
The Wheelhouse will evaluate each subsidy request and may decline some requests if they do not align with current policies and priorities. Each request will be assessed on its own merits.  The application process is easy - Just click the link below.  

Subsidy for training programmes:
The Wheelhouse oversees an annual training programme. Subsidies are applied to training that aligns with the aims of The Wheelhouse. Some of these training session will be FREE to attend and some will have a small charge as a partial cost recovery.   These are promoted on the training calendar.
