Fee Exemption for New NSW Apprentices


The NSW Government is investing an additional $285 million over six years to fund the qualification fees for 100,000 new apprentices commencing from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2024.

Removing apprenticeship fees under Smart and Skilled will encourage more people to take up an apprenticeship and motivate employers to hire more apprentices.

It is anticipated the move will increase apprenticeship training commencements under Smart and Skilled over the next six years from 75,000 to 100,000 and boost the overall take-up of apprenticeships

What does this mean?

Any Apprenticeship that commences after the 1st July 2018 will be exempt of the Student Tuition Fee. This fee would usually be $2,000.

•    Students will not be invoiced for the Fee.
•    Employers will not have to reimburse the student fee.

This initiative is set to last for 6 years from 1/7/2018 to 30/6/2014.

This is excellent news and will assist employers with the costs related to employing Apprentices.
