Training Schemes

Approved training schemes establish training package qualifications for specific industries that are available as apprenticeships and traineeships in Victoria.

The VRQA is responsible for determining approved training schemes in Victoria.

Approved training schemes determine, among other things:

  • the apprenticeship/traineeship's nominal duration
  • any requirements for a probationary period
  • the nature and content of the training scheme
  • the skill and knowledge standards required to adequately perform the vocation's activities or tasks.

Minimum hours requirements for employment and training apply to apprenticeships and traineeships. Further information is available in the VRQA Policy on Minimum Hours Per Week for Employment and Training (docx - 1.54mb).

Approved training schemes

Approved training schemes are determined by the VRQA and published in the Victorian Government Gazette.
