The Queensland government has announced new free apprenticeships for people under 21 years of age. The Free apprenticeships for under 21s program will cover the cost of training for apprentices or trainees who commenced or are undertaking priority qualification from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2023.

Am I eligible?
To be eligible for Free apprenticeships under 21s, you must be employed as an apprentice or trainee under a training contract in one of the 139 priority apprenticeship or traineeship qualifications on or after 1 July 2019.
Free means the Queensland Government will cover the full cost of training in the listed priority qualifications, so eligible students don't contribute to training fees.
However, apprentices and trainees may incur related costs such as uniform and resource costs.
