The NSW Government has announced an initiative to support apprentices in bushfire and drought-affected areas whose employers are unable to keep them on.
Apprentices are able to continue to access the training component of their apprenticeships for up to 12 months for free.
This initiative is uncapped and will apply to as many apprentices as needed.
Training Services NSW will work with apprentices in drought and bushfire-affected areas to support them with ongoing training and help connect them to potential employers.
For more information, visit your local Training Services NSW office or call 13 28 11.
