Commercial Cookery Apprenticeships fee-free in NSW

A $285 million initiative will make apprenticeship training fee-free to help address skills shortages in NSW.

From 1 July 2018, the NSW Government is making new apprenticeships fee-free. The student and their employer will not be required to pay the fee.

The NSW Government’s fee-free apprenticeship initiative will:

  • Help address the shortage of skilled commercial cooks in the NSW hospitality industry.
  • Save employers from having to pay up to $2,000 for training costs per apprentice.
  • Make it easier for employers to hire apprentices and encourage more people to take up apprenticeships.
