The objective of the Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Programme is to contribute to the development of a highly skilled and relevant Australian workforce that supports economic sustainability and competitiveness. The Programme contains a range of employer incentives and personal benefit payments to Australian Apprentices. The Programme links into the industries and occupations traditionally associated with the apprenticeship system. In addition, the Programme targets a broad range of traineeships and apprenticeships in new and emerging industries especially where future skills shortages are projected.
