Changes to the Apprenticeship & Traineeship Act 2001

With the introduction of the Apprenticeship and Traineeship Amendment Bill 2017, changes have been identifed that are aimed at simplying and updating the Apprenticeship and Traineeship Act 2001. These changes include:

  • Improving communication between employers and training organisations through stronger requirements for training providers to consult with employers on training plans and report progress regularly
  • Greater emphasis on applying on-the-job training in qualifications 
  • Removing red tape by abolishing the redundant Vocational Training Review Panel
