Wage Subsidies for Apprentices & Trainees

From the Australian Apprenticeship Pathways website. See the announcement here https://bit.ly/31xilKV

The Australian Government has announced a new program called 'Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements'. It is designed to assist job seekers into Australian Apprenticeship jobs, and to help employers take on new staff.

This program is part of the COVID-19 economic recovery. It is available across all industries and to businesses of all sizes.

Eligibility requirements for the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements wage subsidy have changed from Wednesday 28 October 2020.

These changes affect the eligibility of existing workers. The updated Department of Education, Skills and Employment Fact Sheet has the following information about these changes:

From 28 October 2020, your business or Group Training Organisation may be eligible to attract a subsidy for up to 30 existing workers who commence a non-trade Australian Apprenticeship on or after 28 October 2020 if they:

  • move from casual employment to a part-time or full-time Australian Apprenticeship; or
  • move from part-time employment to a full-time Australian Apprenticeship.

No limit will apply where the existing worker commences a trades-based Australian Apprenticeship.

For information on you or your staff member's eligibility, contact an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network provider. To discuss how an Australian Apprenticeship might work for you, get in touch via or contact form or give us a call.

Apprenticeship & Traineeship Careers information may also be found at aapathways.com.au and mygain.com.au

COVID-19 Update - Student & Employer Support

Austrain Academy would like to thank all of our employers and students for adapting to rapidly changing arrangements during this difficult time. It has been a steep learning curve for all of us, so thank you all for your patience and cooperation!

We have instituted strict social distancing and hygiene measures and limited class sizes for those students who need to attend face to face practical training sessions. Where possible, students are attending online training sessions and completing assessments remotely.

We are still taking enrolments for new students so please get in touch if you are thinking of completing some training.

Austrain Academy will continue to monitor the situation closely and take advice from NSW Health and other relevant government authorities to ensure we are responding to the situation appropriately. We will keep you informed of any changes to our operations.

If you are an apprentice or trainee, your training contract and training can continue for six months even if you don't have an employer. Please contact us if your employment situation changes or you have any questions.
