Sometimes there is a need to change employers while a training contract is under way.

Your training contract may be transferred to another employer if you, your current employer and your new employer agree. The new employer must be registered with the Department of State Development (DSD). 

Complete the Transfer to a new employer application form and send it to DSD using the instructions on the form.

DSD will write to you to confirm the change, provided there is no break in service between employers.

If your employer’s business is sold, your apprenticeship or traineeship automatically transfers to the new employer.
