UPDATED eligibility criteria for boosting apprenticeship commencements scheme

The Federal Government has announced some amendments to the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements scheme.

As per this direction, from 28 October 2020, the following changes outlined below will take place.

The key change is that from 28 October 2020, businesses and Group Training Organisations are only eligible for the subsidy for up to 30 staff members to commence a non-trade Apprenticeship or Traineeship.

No limit will apply where the existing worker commences a trades-based Australian Apprenticeship.
