The Australian Government is providing support to all eligible employers who engage a new Australian Apprentice.
The Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements wage subsidy supports any business or Group Training Organisation that engages an Australian Apprentice between the 5th of October 2020 and 31st March 2022 may be eligible for a subsidy of 50 per cent of wages paid for a new or recommencing apprentice or trainee for a 12-month period from the date of commencement, to a maximum of $7,000 per quarter. There is no cap on the number of eligible trainees/apprentices.
This assistance will support new apprentices and trainees across Australia and is in addition to the Supporting Apprentices and Trainees wage subsidy which has helped small and medium businesses to keep their apprentices and trainees in work and training.
For more information read the Boosting Apprenticeships Commencements fact sheet.
