Free training for WA apprentices and trainees:

Training costs will be covered for apprentices and trainees who have had their training contracts cancelled or suspended, to continue their off the job training for up to six months. This support will make apprentices and trainees more employable in the COVID-19 recovery phase, and is one of the State Government's measures to keep WA’s pipeline of skilled workers on track during COVID-19.

  • Eligible apprentices and trainees displaced between 1 March 2020 and 31 December 2020 will be entitled to fee relief. There will be no course and resource fees for any units commenced by these apprentices and trainees for up to six months.

  • Fee relief will continue to apply if the apprentice or trainee is subsequently picked up by another employer.

  • The course fees will be paid by the Department of Training and Workforce Development directly to training providers, who will be able to access the payments from 1 July 2020
