What is a traineeship?
A traineeship is a training contract between an employer and an employee, in which the employer provides training and the trainee learns the occupation.
Trainees must be at least 15 years of age and may already hold a qualification. There is no maximum age. Trainees may be existing workers.
Training can be developed to suit the specific needs of your business. Trainees can be employed on a full time or part time basis. When all competencies have been achieved, the trainee gains a nationally recognised qualification.

- Receive a Government Incentive of up to $4000.00*
- Exemption from Workcover (for new employees) during the traineeship period
- On-the-job training that is designed to minimise disruption to your business
- Training that has been customized to meet your workplace needs
Benefits to YOUR Staff:

Government Incentives for YOUR Business
Payment of incentives is subject to employers and their trainees satisfying eligibility criteria. Various incentives apply to different situations and we recommend that prospective employers of trainees contact us to discuss their particular situation or contact an Australian Apprenticeship Centre (such as MEGT 03 9791 4577) for further guidance on incentives.
Can existing workers attract incentives for their employer?
The eligibility of existing workers to attract incentives depends on the prior qualifications they hold and whether the trainee meets the eligibility requirements of the program
