$500 for new tools? Yes please!

CTF will now offer financial support directly to apprentices and trainees through the Apprentice Tool Allowance. 

The $4.5 million Program launched on 1 July 2022 for one year and provides eligible apprentices and trainees with a rebate of $500 for the purchase of relevant tools and/or safety equipment that is required for the apprentice’s on-the-job work.

The Apprentice Tool Allowance is designed to:

  • Provide financial support for apprentices’ and trainees’ on-the-job activities
  • Promote safety and help update safety equipment
  • Help retain apprentices and trainees in employment for workforce sustainability

There are more than 9,000 apprentices and trainees working in construction in WA who can benefit from the Apprentice Tool Allowance program.
