Wages and conditions

We only regulate training contracts and not your employment contract.

Apprentices must receive the wages and conditions under an appropriate award, approved enterprise agreement, or the national minimum wage and National Employment Standards.

You are required by law to make a copy of this award or agreement available to your employees. 

Apprentices and trainees get the same entitlements as your other employees, such as annual leave, sick leave, public holidays and breaks.
