What is MyPortal?
Looking for information about your rights and entitlements as an apprentice or trainee? Try listening to our podcasts. They have information about your rights at work, including information about pay and conditions like leave, breaks and hours of work.
Apprenticeships and traineeships are formal training arrangements between an employer and an employee.
They combine work with study for a qualification, certificate or diploma.
They can be full-time, part-time or school-based. Anyone who’s old enough to work can do one.
The training has to be registered and recognised by your state or territory training authority. They decide which qualifications are apprenticeships and which are traineeships.
