Training contracts

Training contracts are legally binding agreements between you and your apprentice or trainee (and their parent or guardian if they are under 18). Once registered, they include details such as the signatories, commencement date, duration or 'nominal completion' period and qualification details.

Once a training contract is in place, you are obliged to report any circumstances that may affect your training obligations, such as significant training delays, dissolution of your business or dismissal of your apprentice or trainee.

This guide outlines the process for registering a training contract as well as the compulsory reporting requirements that you need to be aware of once your contract is registered.
