An employee who is working towards a qualification (other than a trade qualification) in a particular industry under a formal training contract.
Conditions and entitlements for trainees vary from award to award. Some awards set out rules and entitlements for training contracts and the payment of training fees.
Check the award to see what applies in each industry.
If the award doesn’t provide for the reimbursement of a trainee’s training costs and fees, it will depend on what was agreed to by all parties in the training contract.
