Trade Support Loans
Trade Support Loans are loans paid in instalments totalling up to $20,000 over life of Australian Apprenticeship. These loans are intended to assist apprentices with everyday costs while they complete their apprenticeship. Eligible trade Australian Apprentices may apply (opt-in) for regular instalments according to their needs.

The allowance is available to eligible full and part-time Australian Apprentices and Australian School-based Apprentices during the first three years of their training.
Support For Adult Australian Apprentices
