A range of financial incentives and support may be available to employers who employ an eligible Australian Apprentice.


Employers who hire an Australian Apprentice may be eligible to receive incentive payments under the Australian Apprenticeships Incentive Program (AAIP).

There are a number of incentives available to employers, including payments when Australian Apprentices commence, recommence and complete their training.

All incentive payments are subject to eligibility criteria, waiting periods and time limits being met. MRAEL can assist your business to determine what incentives may be available by completing a free eligibility check.

Additional support available may include:

  • Disabled Australian Apprentice Wage Support (DAAWS)
