Government Funding

There are a number of Australian federal and state government funding initiatives to aid individuals and employers. For employers, the incentives aim to open up genuine opportunities for skills-based employee training by assisting with the associated business costs. For individuals, many of these incentives allow them access to more affordable training options to seek employment and career pathway progression.

Australian Apprenticeships - Federal Funding

Employers may be eligible for up to $4,000 from the federal government to aid the cost of certified training for each eligible  new employee (full-time or part-time). 

Call us to find out if your chosen course would attract government funding.

Federal funding is when a company pays for the course up-front and gets $1,500 after 6 months for new workers and the balance on completion of the Traineeship.

An Australian Apprenticeship is a great way for an employer to recruit and integrate a new employee into a business whilst providing nationally accredited training. It is a wonderful way for a new employee to learn your business. Apprenticeships include both traditional trade apprenticeships and non-traditional traineeships in approximately 500 industries. Australian Apprentices must be at least 15 years of age and may already hold a lower qualification. There is no maximum age. Training can be developed to suit the specific needs of your business.
