Apprenticeships and Traineeships are funded by the Federal Government. Incentives up to $4000.00 are available to employers to help reduce the cost of the training they wish to provide their new workers. Only workplace training which leads to a nationally recognized qualification attracts the funding. This is available for registered Australian companies that hold an ABN number. Companies are only eligible to share in the funding that relates especially to their industry. For example, a bank cannot collect funding for a hospitality qualification. The participant undertaking the training must also meet certain eligibility criteria. More information about employing under a Apprenticeships and Traineeships can be found here.
Difference between Apprenticeships and Traineeships
Apprentices are trained in a skilled trade, such as electrical, plumbing, cabinet-making and automotive. Upon completion, apprentices become a qualified tradesperson.
Trainees are trained in vocational areas, such as office administration, information technology, and tourism. Upon successful completion, a trainee will receive a qualification in their chosen vocational area.
