What is a registered GTO in NSW?

In NSW, GTOs may be registered under the Apprenticeship and Traineeship Act (2001). To be registered in NSW, a GTO must demonstrate that their organisation is compliant with the National Standards for Group Training Organisations. The Standards were developed and endorsed by the Commonwealth and all States and Territories and are designed to provide a quality framework for a nationally consistent, robust, group training service. Registration is not mandatory in NSW.

As a result, existing registration processes and materials are currently being reviewed. Details of new processes and materials will be posted on this website shortly. In the meantime, organisations thinking about registration or re-registration are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the new National Standards and Evidence Guide.
