Apprentice Mature Age Support


ABBTF is again making their mature age support of $1,000 payable to apprentices who are 23 years and over at the time of starting their apprenticeship.

Mature age support is limited and reserved for apprentices with an original commencement date from 1st July 2012 and 23 or older at start date.

Conditions apply and you must contact ABBTF in your first apprenticeship year to enquire.

This benefit is payable to the apprentice, not the employer and recognises the difficulty older apprentices have on apprenticeship pay rates, particularly in the first year.
