Your training contract

Hessel GTO and the trainee must agree to a training contract and training plan before training can start. If the trainee is under 18, their parent or guardian must also agree. A training contract is a legally binding document that is agreed between Hessel GTO and the trainee.

A training contract covers:

  • the length of the traineeship (12 or 24 months)
  • details of the registered training organisation (RTO) delivering the training
  • the qualification to be obtained
  • employment arrangements and industrial award

The training contract must be lodged with an Apprenticeship Network Provider (ANP).

Your training plan

A training plan is part of the training arrangement and is negotiated and developed between Hessel GTO, the trainee and the RTO. The training contract cannot be approved until the training plan has been submitted to the Department for Innovation and Skills, South Australian Government. Your host employer may also have input with request for specialised elective units that would suit their organisation better.

The training plan provides:

  • the core and elective units the trainee will do as part of their qualification
  • the training provider who will be delivering the training
  • where and when the training will occur
