National register – connecting apprentices and trainees with employers to safeguard jobs and careers

Apprentices and trainees from small businesses who recently lost their jobs are now able to connect with prospective employers to explore ongoing work, through the Apprentice and Trainee Re-engagement Register

The service will support apprentices and trainees displaced as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, by connecting them with employers across the country. The register enables apprentices and trainees who were in a training contract with a small business at 1 March 2020 to upload details such as qualifications, work experience and resumes.

Employers of any size, including Group Training Organisations, are able to register their details and post a vacancy for an apprentice or trainee. Employers who re-engage an apprentice or trainee may be eligible for a wage subsidy of 50 per cent of their wage, under the government’s Supporting Apprentices and Trainees measure.
