The Department of Education and Training will allocate an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network Provider to employers whose previous Australian Apprenticeships Centre have not been successful in continuing under the new contract. For the first five months from the announcement, employers will not be able to transfer their business from one Australian Apprenticeship Support Network Provider to another. This is to provide time for settling in at the commencement of the Contract Period. From 1 October 2015, employers will be able to use the Network Provider of their choice.
