New Apprenticeship Payment Incentives - Extended to Nov 2010

Between 12 May 2010 and 12 November 2010 (inclusive), the Australian Government will continue to provide a $3350 Apprentice Kickstart Bonus to small or medium enterprises (ie. employers with less than 200 employees), including eligible Group Training Organisations who take on a young person aged 19 years and under into a traditional trade Australian Apprenticeship.

Initially introduced in December 2009 the bonus led to the commencement of 21,000 new apprentices. With the success of the initial bonus TAFE SA recommends that you act quickly to ensure you don’t miss out on this next round.

TAFE SA can help your business reach new heights.

Training and developing your staff now is vital to your business’s continued success.  The three TAFE SA Institutes collectively train over 80,000 students each year and support thousands of businesses with their training needs. TAFE SA works with organisations ranging from the state’s largest employers to the smallest businesses.

At TAFE SA you can expect:

  • experience and expertise to provide industry-standard training for your staff at Certificate and Degree level
  • customised and tailored training packages to suit your business
  • flexible delivery of training with e-learning and part-time learning options.
