Trainee entitlements

As a trainee you’ll get the same entitlements as other employees, such as annual leave, sick leave, public holidays and breaks.


You also need to know about your entitlements for your training, like whether you get paid to attend training and who pays for your training fees.

There may be entitlements in awards and registered agreements that trainees don’t get.

Find information about trainee entitlements in your award by selecting from the list below.

Best practice tip

You should also check your training contract for other entitlements.
