Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships, our courses allow you to gain the skills and knowledge required to complete your apprenticeship, while earning an income. You don’t need to leave the worksite to complete your apprenticeship, which gives you and your employer more time to focus on getting the job done.

Incentives for apprentices

Current incentives include:

  • Commencement incentives
  • Recommencement incentives
  • Completion incentives
  • Additional Identified Skills Shortage payment
  • Rural and Regional Skills Shortage incentive
  • Australian Apprentice Wage Subsidy trial
  • Support for Adult Australian Apprentices
  • Mature Aged Worker incentives
  • Australian School-based Apprenticeship incentive
  • Trade Support Loans

For apprentices and trainees:

Travel and accommodation subsidy (Queensland Government)

Apprentices and trainees (not school-based) who have to travel more than 100kms return to attend training for their apprenticeship or traineeship may be eligible for a travel and/or accommodation subsidy.

Youth Allowance, Austudy and ABSTUDY (Department of Human Resources)

As part of this assistance, apprentices and trainees may be eligible for a health care card which may entitle them to a reduction in some of the costs of training.

Financial support and loans (Australian Apprenticeships)

The Trade Support Loan can help eligible apprentices with every day costs while completing their apprenticeship.

Living Away From Home Allowance (Australian Apprenticeships)

An allowance for eligible apprentices and trainees who have to move away from their parent or guardian’s home in order to take up or retain an apprenticeship or traineeship.

Disability support

There are a number of support services available to help apprentices and trainees with disability throughout their apprenticeship or traineeship. Services are available to the apprentice or trainee, their employer and the training organisation.

Detailed information about Australian Government incentives is available in the
Summary of the Australian Government Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program.

Incentives for employers

Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program

Employers of apprentices and trainees may be eligible for incentive payments upon commencement, recommencement and completion of the apprenticeship or traineeship. Financial support is also available to employers of adult (mature age) and school-based apprentices; apprentices in regional areas; and apprentices with disability.

Wage subsidies (Australian Government)

Employers who use the Australian Government’s JobActive service may be eligible for wage subsidies when employing eligible persons who are mature aged, young, long-term unemployed or indigenous.

Back to Work (Queensland Government)

Eligible employers have access to two programs – Employer Support Payment of up to $15,000 and Youth Boost Payment of up to $20,000 – when they employ eligible unemployed jobseekers.

WorkCover Queensland premium discount

From 1 July 2017, WorkCover Queensland has offered employers a discount on their premium if they employ an apprentice. The discount is applied by removing the apprentice wages from the employer’s premium calculation. Does not apply to employment of trainees.

Payroll tax exemption (Business Queensland)

Employers may be eligible for a payroll tax exemption for the wages paid to their apprentices and trainees.

Fee Free Apprenticeships

Free apprenticeships

The Queensland Government will cover the full cost of training for apprentices and trainees, under the age of 25, who commence, or are undertaking, a priority apprenticeship or traineeship qualification from 1 January 2021 to 30 September 2022.

Other Queensland Government funding contributions

1. User Choice

Some training organisations are contracted by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training to provide training and assessment for some apprenticeships and traineeships, at a reduced cost, under the User Choice program. Queenslanders may only access a maximum of two government contributions. It is therefore important that apprentices and trainees ensure the decision they make will lead them to their future chosen career. Their decision may affect their access to further funding in the future.

View the User Choice Program

2. Skilling Queenslanders for Work

There are opportunities under the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative for jobseekers to commence apprenticeships and traineeships. Employers may also apply for incentives under the First Start and Work Start programs when offering apprenticeships and traineeships to eligible jobseekers.
