    In order for us to generate a Training Plan for your Apprentice, we will need to conduct an Employer Resource Assessment (ERA) to determine which units of competency your Apprentice can do fully onsite, and which ones they will be required to attend College. We also need to confirm the Apprentice to Qualified Person ratio is acceptable to the Department.

    A Trainer will visit you onsite to take you through this process, and also to explain more about what to expect from the Apprenticeship journey and give you the opportunity to ask questions. We will require about 30-45 minutes of your time. We will need to gain a copy of the Qualified Persons Trade Qualification or QBCC Licence. You can upload copies below or have them available on the day.

    You can access the Apprenticeship Progression Schedules and Monthly Workshop Calendars through the Employer Dashboard.

    Our Apprenticeship Progression Schedules show the general progression of Units through a 3-Year duration. Some Employers like to extend the Apprenticeships to beyond 3 years, others allow a shorter duration for high performing or mature Apprentices.

    We are happy to tailor the progression to suit you and your Apprentice’s needs however achieving the Quarterly Progression requirements should be considered the minimum achievement each Quarter and gives you a guide to the expectations of your Apprentice’s progression through their training and assessment. Failure to progress satisfactorily may result in the Department of, Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) investigating further which could impact incentive payments and the Apprenticeship contract.


    Contribution Fees are payable for Apprentices over the age of 25 at the commencement of their Apprenticeship. Is your Apprentice over 25?
