Australian Apprenticeships Program
There are a range of Australian and State Government financial incentives available for eligible employers to hire an apprentice or trainee. As an added incentive payroll tax rebates are also available.
Apprenticeships / traineeships combine time at work with training and are more flexible than ever – they can be full-time, part-time or school-based and training can be delivered either on or off the job, or both. Apprentices / trainees can be school students, a person re-entering the workforce or a mature adult simply wishing to change careers. If you don’t have enough work for an ongoing or full-time position, a Group Training Organisation can organise for you to share an apprentice / trainee with another business. The Australian Apprenticeship Support Network can advise you on incentives and help you manage the administration of apprenticeship arrangements, including the training contract, training plan approvals and completion arrangements.
