The VRQA determines which qualifications are available as apprenticeships and traineeships in Victoria. These are called approved training schemes and include terms and conditions, such as:
- whether a qualification is available as an apprenticeship or traineeship
- the nominal duration of an apprenticeship or traineeship
- probationary periods.
Approved training schemes also specify minimum hours for employment and training for apprentices and trainees. For more information, see:
Approved training schemes are published in the Victorian Government Gazette.
We usually update approved training scheme after a new training package has been released. We can also update training schemes to meet industry requests.
