As part of their ongoing commitment to vocational education and training, the SA State Government has just announced changes to subsidised apprenticeship and traineeship qualifications.

WorkReady apprentice and trainee training subsidies

Under the improved WorkReady scheme, subsidies will be available for a total of 627 vocational qualifications including courses in construction, engineering, renewable energy and IT.

 

The SA State Government will also be increasing subsidies for Registered Training Organisations to provide more options for quality training delivery across the state.
