Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements

The Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements program is enabling businesses who take on a new Australian apprentice to be eligible for a 50 per cent wage subsidy, regardless of geographic location, occupation, industry or business size.
Your business or Group Training Organisation may be eligible if:

  • you engage an Australian Apprentice or trainee between 5 October 2020 and 31 March 2022, and
  • your Australian Apprentice or trainee is undertaking a Certificate II or higher qualification, and has a training contract that is formally approved by the state training authority.
