Event Details

Great news for businesses as the Government announces you can claim up to 50% of your employees wages when you put your staff through a traineeship.

The Government has released a new initiative called the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements Wage Subsidy.

Businesses may be eligible to receive up to $28,000 in Government Incentives, when you enrol any number of your new staff into an approved qualification (Casual & Part time staff could also be eligible if they change employment contract ). The program aims to support employers - build skilled workers and support sustained economic recovery.

The Italian Chamber of Commerce is working with our member Upskilled, an RTO (Registered Training Organisation) providing online training in Nationally Recognised Qualifications from Cert II to Advanced Diploma, in Business, IT and Community Services.

Join us on the 22nd July for an online webinar explaining how your business can take advantage of this fantastic Government subsidy. Upskilled can provide your staff with the relevant skills and qualifications your business and trainees require.
