Your training contract is the legal foundation of your apprenticeship or traineeship.
What is a training contract?
Before you start your apprenticeship or traineeship, you’ll sign a training contract which is a legal agreement between you and your employer. If you’re under 18, your parent or guardian will sign it too.
Your training contract outlines:
- the qualification you’re studying
- the number of hours of employment and training per week you will be provided with
- probationary period details
- obligations of you and your employer.
What is a training plan?
Before starting your apprenticeship or traineeship, you also sign a training plan that describes your off-job training with your training provider.
Your training plan will include:
- core and electives qualification units
- training modes including off-job and on-job delivery
- training provider details
- training location.
Finalising your training contract and training plan
Once you’ve drafted your training contract and training plan, we’ll assess them before you start your apprenticeship and traineeship.
If your personal details change or details of your apprenticeship or traineeship vary, such as your training hours or qualification, we’ll work with you to vary your training contract and training plan.
To request a change, see Changing your apprenticeship or traineeship.
Successfully completing your training contact
Once you’ve successfully completed your training contract, including your qualification and off-job training, you’ll receive a certificate or letter of confirmation.
