Support and incentives

The Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Programme aims to encourage employers to take on an apprentice.

A number of financial incentives are available to help employers, particularly where the apprenticeship is in a trade experiencing a skills shortage (see the National Skills Needs List). Available incentives include a one-off payment for taking on mature-age apprentices (over 25 years of age).

Eligibility criteria for incentives apply. 

Contact an Apprenticeship Network provider to start an apprenticeship or traineeship.
