Training plan and record
You, your employer, and your training organisation need to develop a training plan for your apprenticeship or traineeship.
This training plan outlines:
- your current skills
- what training you need to do
- who will deliver the training
- when and where training will be delivered
- how long training will take
- when and how training will be assessed and monitored
- what qualification will be issued on completion of training
- any special training needs.
Your training plan must include details of training delivered off-the-job. This is training that takes place outside of your normal work duties.
The training plan is to be completed and signed by you, your employer and your training organisation. This must be done before the end of the probationary period. Three copies must be kept: one by you, one by your employer and one by your training organisation.
Within 14 days of the training plan being developed and signed, your training organisation will give you a training record. A training record can be in the form of a book, on CD-ROM, or in another format. It will be used to record when you achieve the competencies outlined in your training plan.
You are responsible for looking after your training record. As each new skill is learned, your employer and your training organisation should complete the relevant section.
This training record belongs to you and can be used to:
- demonstrate what training has been completed
- gain credit or exemptions in other training courses
- show that you have achieved competency
- assess when you move to the next wage level (if applicable)
- confirm completion of the training program
- assess skill levels.
Your training record must be regularly updated and signed by your employer and your training organisation (at least every three months).
