In addition to Australian Government incentives, businesses taking on a bricklaying apprentice may also qualify for the Brickstart Bonus through the Australian Brick and Blocklaying Training Foundation.
In addition to current incentives available to employers of apprentices, including the Australian Government’s Boosting Apprenticeships Commencements subsidy, the Australian Brick and Blocklaying Training Foundation (ABBTF) is providing an additional $3,000 Brickstart Subsidy – specifically for employers of bricklaying apprentices.

What’s more, if you choose to employ a bricklaying apprentice through a registered GTO, you will still qualify for ABBTF’s Brickstart Subsidy!
No other construction trade provides Support Funding for the development of its industry’s apprenticeship program. This unique offer is made possible from a combined small levy on the sale of bricks, matched by funds from brick and block manufacturers. To find out more go to ABBTF website.

The list is based on detailed labour market research and analysis.
