Are you a Registered Apprentice?

As a registered apprentice you will be eligible for government subsidised training. A short time after starting work with your employer, an Apprentice Network Provider (Australian Apprenticeship Centre) would have visited your workplace, spoken to both you and your employer and assisted you in completing a training contract application.

If you do not have a copy of your signed contract, ask your employer for a copy. You should have a letter confirming that you are a registered apprentice. If you do not remember signing a contract, speak to your employer about it. If there is no signed training contract your employer needs to contact an Australian Apprenticeships Centre as soon as possible.
