Apprenticeship Incentive Payment Increased

April 11, 2019

These payments are for areas of identified skills needs and specifically target the construction industry with eligible trades including carpenters and joiners, bricklayers and stonemasons, plasterers and wall and floor tilers.

It is anticipated that these extra payments will support up to 80,000 new apprentices across the nation over the next five years. This coupled with the State Government’s own “Skills for All” initiatives and a goal of 20,000 new apprentices over the next four years is a welcome boost to the residential building industry, and in particular for young South Australian’s wanting to embark on a career in construction.
