New Energy Apprentice Support Payment

ADMS and Claiming New Energy Apprentice Support Payments

The New Energy Apprentice Support Payment is designed to encourage apprentices to choose clean energy careers, improve retention rates and deliver more successful completions by providing direct financial support to Australian Apprentices commencing an Australian Apprenticeship in a clean energy occupation.

The New Energy Apprentice Support Payment will be available to eligible Australian Apprentices undertaking a Certificate III, Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma level qualification with an occupational outcome listed on the Australian Apprenticeship Priority List and identified as a clean energy occupation (as highlighted in green on this document).  

The New Energy Apprentice Support Payment is paid over the life of the Australian Apprenticeship, at the rate of $2000 per payment (up to a total of $10,000) for full-time Australian Apprentices or $1,000 per payment (up to a total $5,000 in total) for part-time Australian Apprentices.

From 1 July 2023, eligible apprentices will need to claim through the Apprenticeship Data Management System (ADMS). ADMS is a modern, reliable and secure platform supporting the delivery of the Australian Apprenticeship programs. The system supports the Australian Apprenticeship Incentive system and was implemented in April 2022.

The system is used by Network Providers, State Training Authorities, Government Stakeholders, Employers and Apprentices where the individual logon experience is through the application of their myGovID digital identity. ADMS is utilised for the management of Training Contract creation and data, Employer and Apprentice Profiles, assessing eligibility of incentives, reporting and claim generation.
