Apprenticeship Boost – Eligibility criteria update

Prue Feely News

We have just recieved news of an update to the Apprenticeship Boost Eligibilty criteria. Please see the marked update in red below, as well as some additional notes. 

The Apprenticeship Boost is available if your apprentices are:

  • actively training through a transitional Industry Training Organisation (ITO) or a provider
  • training for a New Zealand Apprenticeship or Managed Apprenticeship recognised by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC)
  • in their first 24 months of training (this includes any previous apprenticeship enrolment with the same transitional ITO or provider).

This means if a trainee has completed an apprenticeship with us before it will be counted within their first 24months of training.  NOTE:  if they have done an apprenticeship with another ITO and are now wanting to do one with us, this is eligible.
