Offering traineeships is a great way to unlock your employees’ full potential in the workplace, maximising your business opportunities by helping to build loyalty with your organisation and give your employees greater confidence in their own abilities.

You will create a skilled, work ready, loyal and clever team dedicated to the needs of your growing business, in a workforce that is progressive in its thinking, self-perpetuating and adaptable to the changes within your industry.

Employees who are new to employment (full time within first 3 months of work, casual within first 12 months of work) may be eligible to have their training subsidised.

A contribution fee of $1000 is payable by the employer prior to training commencement.

When you take up a traineeship, your employees learn on the job while they study. Traineeships take 1-2 years to complete and they’ll receive a nationally accredited certificate on successful completion.

To be eligible for government-subsidised training as an apprentice or trainee employees must:

  • be an Australian citizen, or a permanent resident, or humanitarian visa holder, or New Zealand citizen
  • be 15 years or older
  • live or work in NSW
  • no longer be at school (except for school-based apprenticeships and traineeships)
