Retain apprentices: Is your business eligible for a wage subsidy during COVID-19?

You could benefit from wage subsidies of up to $21,000 over 9 months.

Eligibility requirements:
• Where a small business is not able to retain an apprentice.
• The subsidy will be available to a new employer or Group Training organisation.
