Closure of the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements and Completing Apprenticeship Commencements Program to new entrants

From 30 June 2022, The Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements (BAC) and Completing Apprenticeship Commencements (CAC) Program will be closed to new apprenticeship commencements.

Employers with outstanding claims for payments for wages earned prior to 31 December 2021, must have these submitted with their Australian Apprenticeship Support Network provider by 30 June 2022 to ensure payment.

From 1 July 2022, the Australian Apprenticeships Incentive System will support a more inclusive and sustainable economy, ensuring Australians receive quality training while in paid employment. It will help get apprentices working in secure jobs that are in demand, filling skills shortages.
