Industry Partner Salary Subsidy

A subsidy is available to assist employers who require financial assistance to participate in the National Apprenticeship Programme for a maximum of six (6) months. If accessed, this subsidy can offset the costs related to wages, health insurance premiums and pension contributions.

Employers are responsible for determining the wage/salary and benefits offered to the apprentice they hire. Employers may identify industry-specific, globally recognised training opportunities for apprentices to be better equipped in their respective fields.
