Australian Apprenticeships, which may be referred to as apprenticeships and traineeships in some States and Territories, offer many benefits to employers and Australian Apprentices. Employers can take on an Australian Apprentice who is trained to understand the specific requirements of their workplace and has the skills that match their business objectives. Australian Apprentices have the chance to gain valuable work experience, develop skills and acquire a nationally recognised qualification.

This Code of Good Practice has been developed to assist both parties entering into a Training Contract with a clear understanding of each other’s obligations and expectations. A copy of this Code should be retained by the employer and the Australian Apprentice.
