Additional Incentives for South Australian Employers

Employer Incentives

Through registering your Australian Apprentice with MAS National, as an employer you can be eligible for Federal Incentives to support the Australian Apprenticeship.

Some state governments however run other programs that you can access in addition to the Australian Apprenticeship Incentive Program to support you and your apprentice.

While these programs are not administered by MAS National, we aim to support our employers throughout the apprenticeship and so always endeavour to seek out and refer you to any additional incentive information you may be eligible for.
