Support for Adult Australian Apprentices (National) Initiative

Australian Apprenticeships can provide a pathway to a career change for people looking to re-enter the workforce and for people who are currently working.

Australian Apprenticeships combine work with training in a nationally recognised qualification. Australian Apprenticeships are available in over 60 industries.

Employees and employers can select a qualification in their industry, help determine the training content through the development of an individual Training Plan, and discuss with a training provider how the training can be delivered in a way that meets the needs of the workplace.

An Australian Apprenticeship may be available to you and your employer with the financial support of the Australian State and Territory Governments.

The Support for Adult Australian Apprentices initiative provides financial support to an eligible employer of an adult Australian Apprentice through the Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Programme. The purpose of the Support for Adult Australian Apprentices initiative is to remove barriers for Adult Australian Apprentices and to encourage up-skilling by adult workers through an Australian Apprenticeship.

The program provides support to adult apprentices by:

  • Removing barriers to training and;
  • Encouraging up-skilling by adult workers through an Australian Apprenticeship.

You can apply if you are:

  • 25 years or older at the commencement of your Australian Apprenticeship or
  • completing an Australian Apprenticeship at the Certificate III or IV level in a trade listed on the National Skills Needs List (Carpentry, Carpenter and Joiner, Bricklaying, Fibrous Plastering, Landscape Gardening, Painting, Roof Plumbing, Roof Tiling, Wall and Floor Tiling)
