Tailored 4 Tomorrow – VAST

Do you need flexible training arrangements, in house, at your preferred time?

VAST is pleased to be able to offer a suite of  in-house training options. You can choose from Customised Training, where VAST organises everything from the trainer, venue booking, certificates and a collated feedback report, or if you are a CHSP or Disability Funded organisation you may be eligible to apply for our Tailored 4 Tomorrow and receive a reimbursement. 

Tailored 4 Tomorrow may be training, a workshop or even group mentoring held at your work place or a venue chosen and booked by you. VAST is ready to assist you with venue suggestions and contacts as needed. The length of the session will be determined by your organisation’s individual needs.

Tailored 4 Tomorrow Training sessions may be reimbursed as follows:

Up to $500 to put towards the cost of the trainer’s fees.

If your approved Tailored 4 Tomorrow application involves training that costs less than $500, your organisation will receive a reimbursement to the value of the training e.g. An approved Tailored 4 Tomorrow application for trainer’s fees that amount to $400 would receive a reimbursement to the value of $400.


(Please follow the steps listed in “How to Book in” below.)


To be eligible, a minimum of 10 people who work in a CHSP/disability funded service (paid or unpaid) need to attend the session. You are welcome to join with another organisation/s when organising a Tailored 4 Tomorrow session. This also means that organisations can alternate when applying for reimbursement through VAST.

Reimbursements can only be approved for Tailored 4 Tomorrow applications from CHSP/disability  funded services within our funded region in advance of the training/workshop being delivered. Please contact VAST directly if you need to confirm your organisation’s eligibility.


Tailored 4 Tomorrow may be training, workshops or even group mentoring that is focused on the Aged Care reforms, including the “Wellness, Reablement and Restorative Approaches”, or more generic training, including WHS & Manual Handling or HLTAID003 Provide First Aid.
