Living Away From Home Allowance (LAFHA) is Available for Australian Apprentices who are required to move away from their parents’ or guardians’ home in order to begin or continue their apprenticeship, or are currently homeless. The payments would be made weekly to assist in costs of living
There are certain requirements needed to be eligible for LAHFA and it would be best to contact your local Apprenticeship Network Provider for Details.
Brendan McConnell approached UMR Engines looking for an apprenticeship as an automotive mechanic. Although he had no previous industry experience, after taking the Harrison Career Assessment UMR Engines were willing to give him a chance.
“The boss took me around the workshop and then asked me to do the assessment. It took me about half an hour.
The blokes I work with help me along the way and it gives me great satisfaction that I’m able to help the customers”.
