Government assistance for employers

Did you know that the government offers incentives for employing people? Currently, an employer can be eligible for $10,000 for six months and up to $30,000 over 12 months for employing an eligible candidate – even on a part-time basis.

We at Incentive Employment are also specialists in disability employment {link to page]. We believe a successful community is one which incorporates all members inclusively. We have experience in creating roles for people who live with a disability that offer win–win outcomes for employee and employer.

Talk to us today about the broad array of services sponsored by the government that make it even more attractive to employ a candidate from the Disability Employment Services program.

Government assistance for students

The Australian Government also offer incentives for job seekers to access training. VET Student Loans are available to students who want to study now and need to pay later. The new VET Student Loans commenced 1 January 2017 and replace the former VET FEE-HELP scheme.

Taking out a VET Student Loan up to a capped amount means eligible students can enrol and complete their qualification without having to pay upfront; rather, they can begin their studies and repay the loan once they start earning over a certain threshold.

VET Student Loans can assist eligible students studying higher-level vocational education and training (VET) qualifications delivered by VET Student Loan approved providers.
