Application for approval of an apprenticeship / traineeship

The application form below can be used by Apprenticeship Network Providers (ANPs), Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), Industry Associations and employers to request the approval of any nationally recognised qualification to be made available as an approved apprenticeship/traineeship.  

Skills Tasmania determines the conditions for duration, part-time and school-based availability as well as the approval of qualifications for User Choice funding. This application can also be used to request approval of funding (User Choice) and part-time or school-based delivery of a qualification, including qualifications already approved as an apprenticeship/traineeship pathway.

The Tasmanian Government is committed to supporting the training of apprentices and trainees by making a contribution towards the cost of purchasing their training. The funds provided for each qualification are a contribution only and do not necessarily represent the full cost of delivery. Where the cost of delivery is in excess of the funds provided by the Government, training organisations are entitled to seek the balance from the employer of the apprentice or trainee.

Skills Tasmania will determine the conditions for part-time and school-based availability and duration. Skills Tasmania will also determine if User Choice funding will be available. The process usually takes between two and three weeks.
