Posted on 31/03/2022

The Federal Government announced it will extend the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements (BAC) wage subsidy to the end of the 2021-2022 financial year, this means eligible employers who hire an apprentice or trainee before 30 June 2022, can apply for the 50% wage subsidy for 12 months.

Available to employers of any size, industry or location, the extension of this scheme will support an extra 35,000 apprentices and trainees. This is a massive boost to businesses across the country as it will provide them with the confidence to keep on hiring and provide a continuous support for the economy.
