Apprenticeships & Traineeships

If students are undertaking training as an apprentice or trainee there are additional requirements because of government funding and financial incentives. In these cases an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (ANP) needs to be involved in the enrolment process. Both the student and the employer need to complete a training contract with the ANP before AVTES can enrol the student.

To make your life easier, and the enrolment process more efficient, AVTES can arrange to conduct enrolments at the same time as the ANP completes the training contract. This can occur at your workplace or our offices. This way you can confirm funding eligibility on the spot and get training started as soon as possible.

What 'Workplace Based' means...

Workplace based delivery occurs in the workplace, or on-the-job. We have been delivering our training in this way since 1998 and are very good at it. We understand it is the best way to train students in employment. Both for the student and the business. The student gains one on one attention with an industry experienced Trainer Assessor. The business has the student trained in their systems and their way of doing things. They also save resources and money in having the training done at the workplace by not having to send students off to external sites.

Workplace based training involves an experienced and qualified Trainer Assessor visiting the student in the workplace to conduct the training. Visits typically occur about once a month and we schedule them at a time to suit you. A training plan outlining the units to be undertaken and the time frame for each unit is provided to the student and Workplace Supervisor at the start of training.  

A typical workplace visit includes the trainer going through assessment of the previous unit and introducing the next unit. The student brings their assessment tasks and the Trainer Assessor will look through them and answer any questions the student has along the way. The student may also demonstrate practical skills at this time. Then the Trainer Assessor will introduce the next unit and explain the unit requirements and assessment tasks that the student will need to complete before the next visit. At this point, the Trainer Assessor may demonstrate relevant practical skills.

Students may use a combination of hard copy and online learning resources to gain relevant underpinning knowledge. Instruction in practical skills will occur by both the student's Workplace Supervisor and their Trainer Assessor.
