Training Contract

 

2.          Delete the words "part time" wherever appearing in the award, and insert in lieu thereof the following:

 

part-time

 

3.          Delete the words "full time" wherever appearing in the award, and insert in lieu thereof the following:

 

full-time

 

4.          Delete subclause (b), of clause 7 Wages, and insert in lieu thereof the following:

 

(b)        These wage rates will only apply to Trainees while they are undertaking an approved Traineeship which includes structured training as defined in this Award.

 

5.          Delete the words "school based traineeship" appearing in paragraph (i), of subclause (i), of clause 7, Wages, and insert in lieu thereof the following:

 

school-based traineeship

 

6.          Delete paragraphs (ii) and (iii), of subclause (j), of clause 7, Wages, and insert in lieu thereof the following:

 

(ii)        “Trainee hours” shall be the hours worked per week including the time spent in approved training.  For the purposes of this definition, the time spent in Structured Training may taken as an average for that particular year of the traineeship.

 

(iii)       “Average weekly training time” is based upon the length of the traineeship specified in the Training Contract as follows:

 

Average Weekly Training Time

=

7.6 x 12

 

 

length of the traineeship in months

 

Note 1:

 

7.6 in the above formula represents the average weekly training time for a full time trainee whose ordinary hours are 38 per week a pro rata adjustment will need to be made in the case where the Parent Award specifies different ordinary time hours for example, where the ordinary weekly hours are 40, 7.6 will be replaced by 8.

 

Note 2:

 

The parties note that the Training Contract will require a trainee to be employed for sufficient hours to complete all requirements of the traineeship, including the on the job work experience and demonstration of competencies the parties also note that this would result in the equivalent of a full day’s on the job work per week.

 


Example of the calculation for the wage rate for a part-time traineeship

 

A school student commences a traineeship in Year 11.  The ordinary hours of work in the Parent Award are 38.  The Training Contract specifies two years (24 months) as the length of the traineeship.

 

"Average weekly training time" is therefore 7.6 x 12/24 - 3.8 hours.

 

"Trainee hours" totals 15 hours; these are made up of 11 hours work which is worked over two days of the week plus 1-1/2 hours on the job training plus 2-1/2 hours off the job approved training at school and at TAFE.

 

 

So the wage rate in Year 11 is:

 

$227* x

15 - 3.8

= $83.63 plus any applicable penalty rates under the Parent

 

30.4

Award

 

The wage rate varies when the student completes Year 11 and passes the anniversary date of 1 January the following year to begin Year 12 and/or if the "trainee hours" changes.

 

* See Table 4 - School-Based Traineeships, of Part B - Monetary Rates

 

 

7.          Delete the last paragraph of clause 9, Area, Incidence and Duration, and insert in lieu thereof the following:

 

The changes made to the award pursuant to the Award Review pursuant to section 19(6) of the Industrial Relations Act, 1996 and Principle 26 of the Principles for Review of Awards made by the Industrial Relations Commission of NSW on 28 April 1999 (310 I.G. 359) and take effect on 22 October 2004.

 

This award remains in force until varied or rescinded, the period for which it was made already having expired.
