Government support

Financial support programs from the SA and Australian government

We’ve unlocked more support to help you grow your business with skilled people, in partnership with the Australian Government.

Subsidised training in the form of apprenticeships and traineeships, is now available through the South Australian Government to help you grow your business with the right people, who have the skills you need.

We understand many of you are poised for growth, but the challenges faced with COVID-19 have made it difficult to invest and plan for the future. That's why there's more support for business to hire and retain skilled workers in their business.

See available incentives and subsidies below.
