Traineeships offer employers the opportunity to skill up their workforce, through nationally recognised and accredited vocational education and training (VET) qualifications. Training can be customised and aligned to business operations, and because they are delivered mainly through on the job training, trainees do not require long absences from the workplace.
Employers may also be eligible for financial incentives and wage subsidies of over $20,000 — depending on individual circumstances — to assist with the costs of hiring a trainee.
Setting up a traineeship for your business takes just a few simple steps, and free services are available to help employers through the process.
We have developed new information for employers, including a guide: Traineeships — A quick guide for employers that outlines the process of hiring a trainee and commencing a traineeship, and a series of useful case studies highlighting the financial incentives available to eligible employers — available on our Traineeships for employers page . There is also a list of all traineeships available in Western Australia, in all industry categories.
With financial incentives and a range of quality training available, there's never been a better time to grow your business through traineeships!
