Parent or Caregiver
A parent or caregiver will need to sign the legal paperwork on your behalf if you are under 18. The key documents that will be signed are the Training Contract and Training Plan.
You must have an offer of employment to start an ASbA. The employer will train and monitor you throughout your ASbA. They will make arrangements to work with your schooling.
Your school must approve your ASbA before you start, and will help facilitate details of the employment and training. Your school timetable will need to work with your ASbA training and employment.
Australian Apprenticeship Support Network provider
Once the school, parent or caregiver, and employer are in agreement, an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network provider will need to organise having the Training Contract signed by all parties.
Registered Training Provider
The training provider will deliver the off-the-job training component of the ASbA, in accordance with the Training Plan they have developed.
Changes to the training contract must be communicated to all parties. Changes can include time-off from work to cancellation of the ASbA.
If you haven't completed your apprenticeship or traineeship at school, you will need to change to part- or full-time in your apprenticeship or traineeship. This may happen automatically, but you and your employer may need to contact the Australian Apprenticeship Support Network provider who signed you up.
