Jobs Accelerator Grant

Business SA and Apprenticeship Support Australia welcome the State Government’s recent announcement of increases in the Jobs Accelerator Grant (JAG) for apprentices and trainees.

The State Government has announced that businesses that register a new employee for a JAG will receive an extra $5,000 for an apprentice or trainee as part of a State Budget measure designed to boost employment amongst young people.

The expanded grant scheme means businesses with payrolls between $600,000 and $5 million will receive up to $15,000 for each apprentice/trainee above current staffing levels, while small businesses with payrolls up to $600,000 will receive up to $9,000. It is hoped this will drive about 2,000 new apprenticeship and traineeship positions.
