ABBTF has announced a $2,000 Recommencement Bonus to employers signing on an Out-of-trade bricklaying apprentice in their first or second year.
This applies from 1 December 2012 to 28 February 2013, over the same period that the Kickstart Initiative applies to taking on a new apprentice.
An existing apprentice who is Out-of-trade represents an excellent opportunity for bricklayers to add some skills and enthusiasm to the team.
Apprentices with a second chance are keen to work hard and continue to learn to complete their apprenticeship training to gain the all important qualification.
Employers can qualify for $2,000 from ABBTF payable 12 months after the recommencement date. A Federal Government benefit of $750 is also available as well as all other entitlements after the new start date.
Contact your local training provider or the ABBTF to access Out of Trade bricklaying apprentices
