What is a sign up?

Every Australian Apprentice must be signed up into a formal training contract as soon as they are employed.

This ensures that all parties are aware of their responsibilities and understand what it means to commence an Australian Apprenticeship.

Once signed up, the employer can then pay apprentice or trainee wages and the Australian Apprentice can be enrolled into the appropriate course with a training provider.

To organise a sign up, the employer will need to contact an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network provider, also known as an Apprenticeship Network provider.

Organise for an Apprenticeship Network provider to come out to your workplace to conduct the sign up.


Things to remember...

If you are under the age of 18 you will need to have a parent or guardian sign the training contract.

Make sure you let the Apprenticeship Network provider know of any previous qualifications you have completed.

Keep a copy of your training contract in a safe place and make sure you get the contact details of the Apprenticeship Network provider as this will come in handy if you have any questions throughout your Australian Apprenticeship.  It's a good idea to take a photo of your copy and back up the file to a safe place.


I've started my apprenticeship or traineeship, now what?

After commencing your apprenticeship or traineeship it's still very important to be aware of your obligations, and those of your employer.
