After an apprentice or trainee has started work, Apprenticeship Network Providers or Group Training Organisations may offer what is called Post Placement Support.
Post Placement Support is a customised service based on need. It provides limited ongoing contact that can help support an apprentice or trainee through to the completion of their Australian Apprenticeship.
The Registered Training Organisation (RTO) delivering training will also be in contact with employers and employees on issues relating to training, including the employee's progression toward completing the relevant certificate.
State and Territory governments may also provide support through field staff in place to work through workplace issues.
Completing an apprenticeship or traineeship is not always easy, for example, due to an individual's personal or learning issues. Support from employers, government and service provider networks can be an essential element in achieving a successful outcome.
