Glossary term: Commonwealth Rebate for Apprentices in Full-time Training

Acronym: CRAFT

This scheme, which replaced the National Apprenticeship Assistance Scheme in 1977, provided a technical education rebate to employers to release apprentices for basic trade training and an off-the-job training rebate to employers to release apprentices to other approved courses. With the introduction of New Apprenticeships in 1998, this scheme formally ceased and was replaced by the New Apprenticeships Incentives Programme (NAIP).
