1Navigating the Tasmanian apprenticeship and traineeship system

Apprenticeship Network Providers (ANP) operating in Tasmania carry out a range of functions for the Tasmanian Government as part of their ANP contract.

The Guidelines for Apprenticeship Network Providers-preparing training contracts in Tasmania document provides information for ANP to assist them in the preparation, lodgement and subsequent management of training contracts in accordance with the requirements of Tasmanian legislation and policy. The Guideline provides information to support ANP staff access up-to-date processes to help in the sign-up process and all other changes throughout the training contract.

In addition, there are also the Tasmanian Traineeship and Apprenticeship Committee (TTAC) Policies and Guidelines that provide the ‘rules’ around the Tasmanian system.  All training contract sign ups need to be aware of their obligations to comply with these policies, so ANP staff should be familiar with this document.
