Tasmanian Traineeships and Apprenticeships Committee (TTAC)

The Tasmanian Traineeships and Apprenticeships Committee (TTAC) was established under the Training and Workforce Development Act 2013.

TTAC is a seven person committee. It issues guidelines and procedures for the operation of vocational placements and training contracts, and provides advice to the Minister on these matters. The committee may conciliate or arbitrate disputes arising from the terms, conditions and operation of training contracts.

At 1 March 2016, TTAC members are:

  • Philip Mussared (Chair)
  • David Dilger
  • Stephen Frankcombe
  • David Hudson
  • John Oakley
  • Colleen Reardon
  • Naomi Walsh

TTAC is supported by staff of Skills Tasmania who:

  • provide advice and support to employers, apprentices, trainees, registered training organisations (RTOs) and Apprenticeship Network Providers (ANPs)
  • approve new apprenticeship and traineeship qualifications (including funding where appropriate)
  • register training contracts and administer the amendment of training contracts.

TTAC's clients are:

  • employers
  • apprentices and trainees
  • registered training organisations

TTAC Policies and Guidelines

TTAC has developed policies and guidelines for the purpose of the uniform administration of training contracts, and the fair and equitable treatment of parties to those contracts. Each policy is considered against TTAC's powers conferred to it by the Training and Workforce Development Act 2013.
