Hiring apprentices and trainees
Coronavirus (COVID-19): Supporting employers of apprentices and trainees
If you already have, or employ a new, apprentice or trainee, you may be eligible for wage subsidies.
If you need an apprentice or trainee, you can employ one under a contract that provides a combination of work and training.
An apprentice or trainee is contracted to you for a specified period, which helps them gain experience and skills in your trade.
Depending on your type of business, employing an apprentice or trainee can be a great way to recruit staff and train your existing employees. It can strengthen your business, as you will have people trained in skills that meet your needs. It can also help build the broader skills base needed to keep your industry strong.
