TRAINEESHIP BENEFITS

LTT accesses government incentives wherever possible to deliver lower cost accredited vocational education and training in job related and technical skills. In addition to subsidised rates for certain qualifications, the Australian Government supports businesses to enrol new staff in traineeships through financial incentives and payroll tax exemptions and rebates. These benefits can be used to offset the cost of training for existing employees. 

Launching a training program doesn’t mean disrupting your business – complete an enquiry form here or free call 1300 588 588 and ask for the Business Development Manager to request a training partnership proposal.

For full-time new worker traineeships studying at a certificate III or certificate IV level, the following incentives may be paid to the employer:

  • $2,500 upon completion

For part-time new worker traineeships studying at a certificate III or certificate IV level, a $1,500 incentive may be paid to the employer upon completion.
