Careerforce have established the Apprenticeship Kickstart Fund. The Kickstart is designed to support organisations and apprentices who may not have access to other funding and grants.
Participants can be awarded up to $2,000 for the waiver of Careerforce apprenticeship programme enrolment fees.
To be eligible for the Apprenticeship Kickstart, the apprentice or employer must not qualify for any other grant, benefit, scholarship or funding towards their enrolment costs.
The apprentice must also:
- be enrolled in a Careerforce Apprenticeship Programme (Level 4).
- be employed in a sector relevant to the apprenticeship programme.
- have an employer who is supportive of their application.
There are only 500 Kickstart grants available.
