About Traineeships under Skills Tasmania

  • Eligibility of New and Existing Workers under Tasmanian Traineeships

    Tasmania subsidises qualifications for both New Worker trainees and Existing Worker trainees.

    To be eligible for a Tasmanian training contract the trainee must:

    a) work in Tasmania  

    b) be at least 15 years old  

    c) be an Australian citizen, permanent resident, New Zealand passport holder who has been a resident in Australia for more than 6 months, or visa holder with rights to engage in work in Australia

    d) receive remuneration for their work

    e) complete a minimum of 15 hours combined work and training per week. (Employment and training hours may be averaged over 4 weeks for non-school based training contracts)  

    f) undertake an approved Australian Traineeship qualification with an approved RTO (like ACCM) and 

    g) have the required supervision in the workplace for the trainee.

  • New Worker and Existing Worker Traineeships

    New Workers are defined as fulltime staff who have started their job within the past three months; or part time staff who have started within the past 12 months and are registered as a trainee within that timeframe. 

    Existing Workers have been employed for much longer i.e. full-time staff for more than three months and part time staff longer than 12 months.  

    New Worker and Existing Worker Traineeship status and eligibility is assessed by the College based on the information provided in the online enrolment application and subsequent discussions with the employer and trainee.

  • Subsidies for Some Existing Worker Traineeships in Tasmania

    Some of the funded traineeship qualifications offered by the College are also funded for Existing Employers by Skills Tasmania.

    Subsidised places are limited in numbers and can only be confirmed after enrolment. The College will submit an application for the Existing Worker Traineeship with Skills Tasmania and let you know if you are successful.

    If a subsidised place is not approved you can continue on a Fee for Service basis.

  • Tasmanian Traineeship Fees

    Traineeship fees vary by type of traineeship and course undertaken.

    For the traineeships partially subsidised and on the College approved funding allocation, the 2017 traineeship fees are $500 - $2200 depending on Qualification Level.

    If a traineeship is not in the College approved funding allocation, the fees will be as per the College published standard price or as agreed with the client on a fee for service basis.
