How does a 50% wage subsidy sound? To put it another way, would $28,000 towards staff training over the next 12-months sound tempting?
By investing in business and hospitality training for your team, your venue could be eligible!*
In a nutshell, there is currently up to 50% in wage subsidies available for apprentices and staff undertaking a Certificate III – Diploma qualifications (ie up to $28,000 per eligible employee) until the end of June! This is all thanks to the Federal Government’s BAC funding initiative.
As an example, if a venue had 10 employees who undertook the training, that’s a potential subsidy of $280,000 in a 12-month period!
This funding applies to:
- Existing staff
- New apprentices
- New trainees
Training could be in the form of:
- School based traineeships – Hospitality or Business (SIT30616 Certificate III in Hospitality and BSB30120 Certificate III in Business)
- Commercial Cookery apprenticeships (SIT30816 Certificate III in Commercial Cookery)
- Traineeships – Certificate IV Hospitality and Diploma level (SIT40416 Certificate IV in Hospitality and SIT50416 Diploma of Hospitality Management)
We appreciate there are current staff shortages in many venues so we can be flexible with start dates.
Staff do need to be signed up by 30th June 2022 though…so time is ticking.
Firstly, there’s an eligibility process (which we take care of). All we need from you is:
- List of staff that you’d potentially like to put through the training and
- Their DOB, employment start date, current employment status (casual, part-time, full-time).
