Apprenticeships Data Management System

The Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE) has begun to mobilise the new Apprenticeships Data Management System (ADMS) to help streamline the way employers lodge their BAC and CAC claims.

Here’s a video that gives you an introduction to ADMS.

The lodgement of any BAC and CAC claims that fall due after 1 April 2022 that relate to wages paid from 1 January 2022, and beyond, will be the responsibility of employers, with the claims to be processed and managed by DESE and Services Australia directly.

Employers are responsible for establishing their connection to ADMS to claim future BAC and CAC wage subsidies. To help you get set up, an extensive list of resources and supporting guides can be found here.

Claims that relate to wages paid between 5 October 2020 and 31 December 2021 will continue to be processed and managed by your team at Apprenticeship Support Australia.


Here's how you can get started.

Our team remain vigilant and attentive in providing you with support in setting up your ADMS access and will provide you with the information you need to get started.

Employers should follow the three steps to setting up ADMS. Here’s a video that shows you how to access ADMS.

Step 01: Set up your myGovID

myGovID is your Digital Identity and makes it easier to prove who you are online.

Think of this step as a 100-point ID check, but on your smart device.

To access ADMS, your myGovID Digital Identity will need to be standard identity strength or above. To learn how to set up your myGovID, please visit

Step 02: Connect to Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM)

RAM allows business owners to link their digital identity to their business and to authorise others to act on their behalf when using participating online government services.

To link your myGovID with your business, or authorise others to act on your behalf, please visit

Step 03: Connecting to ADMS

From 11 April 2022, you’ll be able to log in to ADMS here.

Before you claim your BAC or CAC wage subsidy using ADMS, you need to set up your myGovID and link it to your business through the Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM). If you haven’t done so already, refer to Steps 01 and 02.

You’re able to download a comprehensive set of Employer training and support materials here.

For more information or support for accessing ADMS, please call 1800 020 108.

Supporting Resources

ADMS supports all aspects of Australian Apprenticeships. This means it holds a lot of information about apprentices and their employers.

To help keep this information safe and secure, ADMS users must prove their identity and their authority to act on behalf of a business or organisation before accessing ADMS.

Setting up your access to ADMS is a three-step process. After completing these steps, you can log in to ADMS any time using your myGovID.

To help you get set up, an extensive list of resources and supporting guides can be found here.


We want to hear from you.

Understanding our employers and their needs remains our priority. We’re asking for your feedback that will be passed on directly to The Department of Education, Skills and Employment.
