Your training provider is responsible for developing and delivering training, Assessing competencies and issuing your apprentice with their qualification once they are completed. It is important that you choose the Training Organisation that will work the best with you and the apprentice. The training provider can either be public, such as TAFE or it could be a private organisation with proper accreditation. Your local Australian Apprenticeships Centre will be able to provide you with a list of Registered Training Organisations that are offering your chosen qualification. There are providers that are funded by the government which means that they can provide subsidised training but if you and your apprentice choose an unfunded provider, the training will be provided on a fee-for-service basis.
There are a few questions which you should consider when you and your apprentice are choosing a training provider:
How much input will you and your apprentice have into the training plan?
Ask how and when the training will take place and when will it be assessed?
How often will your provider visit the worksite and provide feedback?
Is there any other assistance you and you apprentice need and can the Training Organisation provide you with this?
