Clean Energy Apprenticeships
The Australian Government launched the New Energy Apprenticeships program as part of its commitment to net zero emissions.


Full-time apprentices may be eligible to claim up to a maximum of $10,000. This is paid in intervals of $2,000 at 6, 12, 24 and 36-month intervals, and on completion of their apprenticeship. Part-time apprentices will receive half of the above payments ($1,000) and be able to claim up to a maximum of $5,000 at the same intervals. 


If you employ a New Energy Apprentice, you may be eligible for up to $15,000 in wage subsidies.
