$6,000 for employers to take on a displaced apprentice
New Apprentice and Trainee Re-engagement Incentive to help maintain the pipeline of skilled workers
$6,000 incentive for employers who take on a displaced apprentice
$3,000 for employers taking on a displaced trainee
Employers who take on an apprentice or trainee whose training contract was terminated on, or after, March 1, 2020, are eligible to receive the payment.
The incentive will help employers maintain a pipeline of skilled workers in Western Australia and is available until June 30, 2021 from the Department of Training and Workforce Development.
The financial boost for businesses follows the recent announcement by the State Government to cover the training costs for more than 3,000 apprentices and trainees, who have had their contracts cancelled or suspended, to continue their 'off the job' training for up to six months.
The incentives are supported by a new Out of Contract Register, available on the Jobs and Skills WA website, which helps apprentices and trainees who have been stood down to find a new employer.
