What is a traineeship?
A traineeship is a training and employment contract that has the intended outcome of a Nationally Recognised Qualification for the trainee and possible financial incentives for the employer. Traineeships are mostly available for new workers and are delivered on the job so there is no requirement for the trainee to leave work for off-the-job training.
Payroll Tax Exemptions
Eligible WA employees registered under a training contract who earn less than $100,000 per year attract a 5.5% payroll tax exemption for the duration of their training contract. So for example, if your registered trainee is on a salary of $60,000 per year and they are on an 18 month contract your company receives a payroll tax saving of $4950
Australian Apprenticeship Incentives
Eligible trainees attract commencement and completion incentives for their employer. Guidelines and more information is available from the Australian Apprenticeship website or contact your local Australian Apprenticeship Support Network Provider for assistance.
Tuition Fee Subsidies
Most traineeships attract subsidised tuition fees through the Jobs & Skills WA program. Indicative fees are shown on individual qualification flyers available for download from our website.
