Training that
works for you

Find out how skills and qualifications can boost your career or help grow your business.

Earn while you learn with an apprenticeship

Apprenticeships give you the chance to learn real skills in the workplace, earn a nationally-recognised qualification and be paid a wage which rises as you progress through training.

You’ll enter into a training contract with an employer and a training provider that will allow you to combine hands-on training in the workplace with off-job study.

Employ an apprentice or trainee in your business

Under the Australian Government's COVID-19 economic recovery plan, it has been announced that an additional $1.2 billion will be invested to support businesses to employ new apprentices or trainees.

There are a number of ways in which employing an apprentice or trainee can help you build your business with confidence. You can train and tailor skillsets to meet the needs of your business now and into the future.

A range of options for training

What is subsidised training?

If you want to study a course that will give you skills employers need, you may be able to pay reduced course fees.

If your training is subsidised, the South Australian Government pays part of your course fees for you. The money goes straight to your training provider, so you can focus on your training.

The course search will tell you if the course you're interested in is subsidised.

Training providers will confirm whether or not you can access subsidised training, but we've put together an eligibility checker to give you an idea of what to expect.
