Automotive Industry Structural Adjustment Programme (AISAP)
The Automotive Industry Structural Adjustment Programme (AISAP) supports employees, businesses and regions affected by the closure of Australia’s car manufacturing industry.
AISAP can help eligible workers with:
- résumé preparation
- job applications
- interview skills
- training to obtain tickets or licences
- work experience, and
- other assistance to help them find new employment.
The Automotive Industry Structural Adjustment Programme (AISAP) is delivered as part of Jobactive, the Australian Government’s way to get more Australians into work. It connects job seekers with employers and is delivered by a network of Jobactive providers.
Access to a jobactive provider who will help you build a job plan.
The job plan can include:
- activities to help you get skills that local employers are looking for
- connections to other support from government
- assistance to look for jobs each month.
To help you get and keep a job, your jobactive provider can access funding to pay for work-related items, relevant training and support after you start a new job. For eligible automotive workers, this fund includes a $1300 credit for jobactive providers to use.
Your provider can also connect you to a range of other government initiatives. These include relocation assistance, wage subsidies, training, apprenticeships and help to start a business through the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS).
Workers that have lost their jobs in the:
- automotive manufacturing industry or
- eligible component suppliers to the industry.
To receive assistance through the Automotive Industry Structural Adjustment Programme, you must register with a jobactive provider no later than six months after the date of your redundancy.
Your jobactive provider will confirm your eligibility for the programme and will need to see your letter (or other evidence) of redundancy to complete your registration.
