Employers & industry advisors

Vocational education and training (VET) provides people with the workplace skills and technical knowledge they need to meet current and future employment demands.

Apprenticeships and traineeships combine work-based training with an employer and formal training from a training provider. They are established under training contracts between the employer and the apprentice or trainee and are regulated by government.

Employers and industry advisors

I am looking to train new or existing staff

Employers and workplace supervisors play a central role in the success of apprenticeships and traineeships in New South Wales and are in a key position to maximise the success of training.


I employ an apprentice or trainee

When you employ an apprentice or trainee you are responsible for ensuring that the apprentice or trainee has access to the full range of work required to develop the skills and industry knowledge they need on the job. You also need to observe their progress and confirm that they are developing the required skills and knowledge by liaising regularly with the RTO.
