Real Estate Traineeships



From the 5th of October the Federal Government will subsidise the wages of Trainees and Apprentices by 50% up to a maximum $28,000.00 per annum, or $7,000.00 per quarter for the period until 30th September, 2021.


This presents an incredible opportunity for Real Estate Agencies looking to hire new and train existing staff.


The $1.2 billion Federal Government cash injection is designed to get people employed and trained whilst giving employers an incentive to hire new and train current staff.


By enrolling a new or existing team member into the Think Real Estate Traineeship Program you may qualify for this subsidy and they will achieve their Real Estate Licence qualification by undertaking the CPP41419 - Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice – Class 2 Licence Course.


Given that it is now mandatory for all Certificate of Registration holders to become Class 2 Licence holder, within a maximum of 4 years, this new incentive is a no brainer and all Certificate holders should be encouraged to apply for this funding through Think Real Estate.


There are only 100,000 available places across all industries.


How do you apply:


  • All current Certificate of Registration holders should complete the attached form (Click here) and have this signed off by the employer.
  • Return the form to Think Real Estate
  • This will then be sent to the Apprenticeship Centre for approval
  • The Apprenticeship Centre will then meet with student and employer
  • Following approval Think Real Estate will organise your employees training program to enable them to start their Real Estate Licence Course training.
  • The Licence Course can be completed online, via workshops or a combination of both. All students have a minimum completion time of 12 months and a maximum completion time of 24 months.


How does the funding work:


Once your Trainee is approved, you will claim a 50% subsidy of the wages you pay them each quarter. This payment is capped at $7,000.00 per quarter.


Upon receipt of your first quarter payment, you will be required to pay Think Real Estate the sum of $2,000.00 and a second payment of $2,000.00 again upon receipt of the second quarter payment to cover the cost of the Real Estate Traineeship Program.


Following this payment, all additional payments per quarter will be retained by your office.


To find out more, please contact our office as soon as possible in order to secure this new wage subsidy, Federal Government incentive.


This is an opportunity not to be missed for an Agency Principal looking to expand their business and upskill their new and existing staff.
