The Federal Government will extend and expand the apprentice and trainee wage subsidy to encourage younger Australians into trades and services.

The Morrison government is already covering 50 percent of the wage of 100,000 new apprentices and trainees.

The government will cover half the wage of tens of thousands of new apprentices and trainees under a further $1.2 billion expansion to the major COVID rescue package.
