The latest research from the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) showed that Western Australia had 26,660 commencing apprenticeships and trainees in the 12 months to June 2021, up 81% on the previous year.

Associate Director Industry Skills Lena Constantine, who oversees Apprenticeship Support Australia WA, said the State was performing at a really strong level and the Federal Government’s Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements (BAC) wage subsidy was paying dividends.

The BAC is available to any business that engages an Australian apprentice between October 5, 2020, and March 31, 2022, and offers a subsidy of 50 per cent of apprentices’ gross wages paid up to a maximum of $7000 per quarter, per eligible apprentice, for wages paid in the 12-month period from the date they start.
