The Australian Apprenticeships Incentive System will provide financial support to eligible employers in priority occupations from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2024. Priority occupations are those on the Australian Apprenticeships Priorities List.
There will be a Hiring Incentive for businesses that hire apprentices to train for jobs that aren’t on the Australian Government’s Priority List for Apprenticeships.
Beginning on July 1, 2024, there will be a midpoint review to evaluate progress and verify programme eligibility rules. Only priority occupations will be eligible for assistance, which will be provided through a combination of employer and apprentice payments, including a Hiring Incentive for employers and Training Support Payments for apprentices.
Refer to the Incentives System Reform – Factsheet, Incentives System Reform FAQs, or contact your local Australian Apprenticeship Support Network provider for more information on employer incentives in the new Australian Apprenticeships Incentive System (Incentives System).
Employers claiming incentives for an apprentice or trainee who started before 1 July 2022 will continue to be supported under the Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program after the Incentives System is implemented on 1 July 2022
