Travel and Accommodation Allowance supports rural and regional apprentices to complete their training by subsidising their travel costs.
You can apply for a Travel and Accommodation Allowance for apprentices who are required to travel long distances (over 150km round trip) to their training provider.
You may be able to get reimbursed up to $1000 for equipment or services needed to bring your apprentice on board, including:
- tools, clothing and equipment
- car licensing, registration or driving lessons
- police checks and other clearances
- medical assessments or drug tests.
You may be eligible for funding if your apprentice started after 7 September 2018.
Pre-approval is available to give you peace of mind that your expenses will be reimbursed.
The Australian Government is currently providing financial incentives for employers who take on apprentices.
