Building skills – supporting apprenticeships
The Government is extending the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements (BAC) program until March 2022.
The extension will deliver on the Government’s commitment to building a pipeline of skilled workers by further supporting growing businesses to take on new apprentices and trainees. This Government is also delivering pathway services for 5,000 women to commence in a non-traditional apprenticeship.
Through the subsidy, any business or Group Training Organisation (that’s us) that engages an Australian Apprentice between 5 October 2020 and 31 March 2022 may be eligible for a subsidy of 50 per cent of wages paid to 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.
