Apprentices and Trainees

Labor is pleased the Liberal Government has finally recognised the need to do more to support apprentices and trainees, including adopting our policy for apprentice bonus payments.

We will match the programs outlined in the Budget for payroll tax rebates and bonuses for businesses employing apprentices that fall under the payroll tax threshold.

A Labor Government, as the state’s largest employer, will set targets in each department for apprentices and trainees to ensure a program of skills training is rolled out
within government.

Only a Rebecca White Majority Labor Government will be about Putting People First.
