It all starts with your employer who recruits you then contacts an Apprenticeship Network Provider to arrange your Training Contract, which outlines the conditions of your training in the workplace. Your employer will provide a safe workplace where quality training, practical instruction and learning can occur.
Your legal employer may also be a Group Training Organisation (GTO), like MobReady. GTOs recruit you, pay your wages and place you with a host employer who conducts your workplace training.
If you’re a school-based apprentice or trainee, your school will be a partner in your apprenticeship or traineeship as it forms part of your HSC. They’ll ensure your school timetable includes the time you need to attend work and your RTO.
By signing your National Training Contract you agree to receive workplace training, learn the skills of your vocation, engage in formal training with your Registered Training Organisation (RTO), like TAFE, complete tests and assessments and obtain your nationally recognised qualification.
Your workplace supervisor or employer will support you throughout the program. They will teach you how to do your job, how to practice the skills you’re learning, ensure your safety, organise and record your workplace training, provide feedback, and supply assessment evidence to your Registered Training Organisation.
