Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program

The Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program provides employers with incentives to employ an apprentice.

These measures include:

  • a range of financial incentives to Australian employers to offer apprenticeship opportunities
  • a living away from home allowance (LAFHA) to apprentices who need to move away from their parent's home to take up or retain an Australian apprenticeship.

The incentive payments are based on a skill shortages list of trades as well as a set of high priority occupations.
