As the Trainee’s legal employer, AFL SportsReady pays the Trainee and manages all of their leave, superannuation, education/qualification and WorkCover.
Costs vary on when the Trainee completed high school and their qualification.
For a recent school leaver, you can expect to pay from $21.77 per hour* + GST for the Trainee. This cost includes salary, superannuation, education fees, WorkCover and our support staff.
Host employers may be eligible to receive incentive payments at 6 months of the Traineeship for a total of $1,750 payment back to you.
The cost for Trainees can often be paid for from project budgets rather than headcount which offers enormous flexibility to Principals! *Subject to Government changes to the National Training Wage.
