Following consultation with stakeholders the Department of Training and Workforce Development has updated its Apprenticeship and Traineeship Policy. The policy provides information for stakeholders involved in regulated apprenticeships and traineeships in Western Australia.
The policy has been simplified and incorporates existing policy positions from a number of related policies. The consolidated policy now includes the School Based Apprenticeship Policy, Travel and Accommodation Allowance Policy, Trade Skills Recognition Policy and the Trade Certificate Policy.
The policy has weblinks to enable easy access to program information and fact sheets for employers, apprentices, registered training organisations and other providers operating in the apprenticeship system.
The revised policy is now in effect and is available from the Department's website at www.dtwd.wa.gov.au.
