The NSW Training Market

The NSW Training Market provides opportunities for private, industry, community based and public registered training organisations (RTOs) to participate in the delivery of vocational training that addresses the skills and workforce development needs of the NSW industry and community.

To deliver training registered training organisations must be contracted under the APL Contract. The APL administers programs to deliver training to NSW jobseekers, workers, apprentices and trainees. The programs are:

  • NSW Apprenticeship and Traineeship Training Program (ATTP) - provides funding support for the delivery of training to NSW registered new entrant trainees and apprentices in specific trades and geographic regions, and
  • NSW Strategic Skills Program (SSP) - provides funding for training that addresses the strategic skill needs of industry, community and individuals. The training targets the up-skilling needs of industry and the existing workforce, and supports employment opportunities for those entering the workforce.
