From time to time, the VRQA investigates specific industries or workplace issues as part of an apprenticeships campaign.
Campaigns target specific qualifications and occupations to make sure that apprentices and trainees are:
- properly supervised
- provided with work that matches the qualification they are enrolled in
- being released/paid to attend training.
If you received a message that your workplace may be visited, or just want to know that you meet important regulatory requirements for apprenticeships, use the simple Employer Checklist to check your arrangements.
Apprentices and trainees can also use the checklist to see whether their apprenticeship meets requirements.
Campaigns identify and address non-compliance with regulatory requirements. Campaigns also help apprentices, trainees and their employers to understand their rights and obligations under the training contract.
A campaign may be initiated following a VRQA risk assessment or in response to industry intelligence. The VRQA works with industry stakeholders and relevant State and Commonwealth government agencies in designing and implementing regulatory campaigns.
