Fee-free government-funded NSW traineeships

What are training contracts?

A training contract is a legally enforceable agreement designed to protect the interests of both trainees and their employers. Signed training contracts outline the rights and obligations of both sides to the agreement and are used to register trainees with the Australian Apprenticeship Support Network and the NSW Government.

The training contract will include the following:

  • a training plan that specifies the weekly hours of employment and training the trainee should receive
  • problem-resolution procedures for on-the-job training arrangements

The Australian Apprenticeship Support Network will provide a list of approved apprenticeship providers, as well as special support for trainees and apprentices who require it.

What is a training plan?

A training plan specifies the training and assessment standards that will apply during a traineeship.

It will detail:

  • how often training will take place
  • where training will take place
  • the type of assessment that will be used.

Each training plan is tailored to an individual trainee and is formulated in cooperation with the employer and the supervising registered training organisation (e.g. Entry Education).

A customised training plan should be created within the first three months of the traineeship and should reflect both the needs of your employing business and the needs of the trainee.

Entry Education follows NSW Government guidelines for each training plan and ensures that students/trainees have input into their development. See the NSW training plan guidelines for further information.

What are the costs for the NSW traineeship program?

The NSW Government’s Smart and Skilled program provides free-of-charge training courses designed to help job-seekers gain employment and advance in their chosen profession. This means currently selected apprenticeships and traineeships in NSW are now available at no cost to you or your employer, providing you register with Smart and Skilled contracted RTO like Entry Education.
