Hair & Beauty AcadeMY


Government Funding

Employers taking on trainee or apprentice workers not only support the Hair and Beauty, but may also be eligible for Government funding!

The Australian Government has introduced a number of initiatives to assist employers who take on an Australian Apprentice, particularly where the Australian Apprenticeship is in a trade experiencing a skills shortage. These initiatives provide financial incentives to eligible employers through the Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program.

Assistance on all aspects of Australian Apprenticeships can be obtained from an Australian Apprenticeships Centre. Australian Apprenticeships Centres are contracted by the Australian Government to deliver free Australian Apprenticeships Support Services, which include providing information and assistance to employers, Australian Apprentices and other interested people, marketing and promoting Australian Apprenticeships and administering Australian Government incentive payments to employers and allowances for Australian Apprentices. To contact an Australian Apprenticeships Centre, please call the Australian Apprenticeships referral line on 13 38 73.

Employers of an Australian Apprentice may be eligible for financial assistance through:

  • Standard, Additional and Special incentives 
  •  Support for Adult Australian Apprentices 
  • Assistance for Australian Apprentices with Disability 
  • Support for employing an Australian School-based Apprentice 
  •  Eligibility for incentives under the Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program may be affected by the duration of the employment relationship you have with your current employee.

  • Apprentice training (see apprentice training tab)
  • Personalised training either in salon or at the Academy or a combination of both,
