Restart Programme Evaluation Strategy

The Restart Programme is a wage subsidy which aims to assist mature age people to participate in the workplace by encouraging employers to take on workers 50 years of age or older. It was announced in the 2014-15 Budget and allocated $524.8 million over four years.

The evaluation of the Restart Programme will provide an understanding of the usage and impact of the programme. This evaluation strategy outlines how the department will evaluate the Restart Programme, including the key evaluation questions, methods and data sources, and reporting timeframes.
