ADMS for Employers

The Apprenticeships Data Management System (ADMS), developed by The Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE), helps to streamline the way employers lodge the following claims:

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

The lodgement of claims that fall due after 1 April 2022 that relate to wages paid from 1 January 2022, and beyond, are 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 subsidies and incentives. 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 these steps to setting up ADMS.

Here’s a video that shows you how to access ADMS.

Step 1: Set up your myGovID

myGovID is your digital identity which 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 2: Connect to Relationship Authorisation Manager

The Relationship Authorisation Manager (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 3: Connecting to ADMS

You can log in to ADMS here.

Before you claim your subsidy/incentive using ADMS, you need to link your myGovID to your business through the RAM. If you haven’t done so already, refer to steps 1 and 2.

Supporting Resources

ADMS supports all aspects of Australian apprenticeships, meaning it holds an abundance 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.
