It’s great to see the Australian Government announce it will continue its wage subsidy support to apprentices hired under the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements (BAC) program. The BAC program provides a 50 per cent wage subsidy in the first 12 months of an apprentice’s employment. Businesses have until 31st March 2022 to benefit from this program.

Further welcome news for business is the introduction of the new Completing Apprenticeship Commencements (CAC) program where businesses can claim a 10 per cent subsidy in the second year of their apprentices’ employ, and a 5 per cent subsidy in their third year. The MTA Institute continues to support this initiative and for further details please view HERE.

The MTA Institute has always endeavoured to provide reasonable support to each and every student and employer we deal with in Queensland. To see what’s on offer, we have our very own Resources webpage to offer students and employers links regarding this support.
