Key principles for school based apprenticeships and traineeships

The school based apprenticeships and traineeships policy is based on two key principles that are critical to the success of School based apprenticeships and traineeships arrangements.

Principle 1 - flexibility

The pattern of work, training and study for school based apprentices and trainees should balance:

  • learning needs of individual students
  • workplace needs of employers
  • school and NT certificate of education and training pattern requirements, and
  • RTO training delivery requirements.

Principle 2 - communication

All parties involved in the operation and management of school based apprenticeships and traineeships must ensure that mechanisms for regular and effective communication are in place prior to commencement.
