Apprenticeships and traineeships

Apply to deliver subsidised training activity for apprentices and trainees.

Subsidised Training List (STL)

Qualifications listed on the STL are subsidised in South Australia.

To discover what apprenticeship and traineeship qualifications, conditions and subsidy amounts are available, see Subsidised Training List.

Skilling South Australia Projects

Through the Skilling South Australia initiative, we’re supporting an additional 20,800 apprenticeships and traineeships over four years.

Funding is available for projects that drive apprenticeship and traineeship growth in the state.

We’re particularly interested in attracting high quality projects that:

  • boost regional apprenticeships or traineeships
  • support strategic industry sectors, such as defence, information technology, cyber security and disability services, or
  • assist specific cohorts, such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander job seekers, women in non-traditional trades or long-term unemployed job seekers into apprenticeships or traineeships.

Read the project guidelines and supporting documents before submitting your application.

To apply, see Apply for funding.

If you have any questions, see the SSA Projects enquiry form.

Qualification Quotas

Subsidised Traineeship and Apprenticeship List (STAL)

Subsidised Traineeship and Apprenticeship List (STAL) Quotas subsidise apprenticeships and traineeships. 

Applications are open on a rolling basis throughout the financial year.

Training Priority List (TPL)

Training Priority List (TPL) Quotas provide an allocation of subsidised training places with a specific training provider in selected courses. 

There are no new places allocated for the release of STL5.1, therefore applications for 2019-2020 TPL Quotas are closed.

Read the project guidelines before submitting your application.
