In signing a training contract, employers have entered an agreement, which binds each party to obligations under the State legislation. In relation to attendance at off the job training, employers are obliged to:
Release the apprentice from work to attend any training and assessment specified in the training plan;
Ensure the training plan is followed, training records are kept up to date and the apprentice's progress is monitored.
I certify that I am a person within our organisation authorised to make an application to seek a change to an apprentice’s Training Schedule and I understand:
Our organisation’s obligations under the Vocational Education and Training Regulations in relation to apprentice attendance at off the job training, as listed above.
If approved, rescheduling training may result in the employer having to request an
extension to Training Contract. Rescheduling training may result in the employer or apprentice still being liable for fees (in accordance with DTWD Fees & Charges Policy).
Apprentices are committed to attending the full block training regardless of missing the first days through absenteeism/illness.
Rescheduled training may not be at the same campus as the initial training.
