This document provides a variety of material on the Australian training systems. Section 1 summarizes apprenticeship and traineeship training and administration in Australia and provides a broad overview of the responsibilities and roles of industry, government, and trade unions. It also outlines the financial support provided by the state and territorial governments as well as by the Commonwealth for apprentice and trainee training. Section 2 is a directory of training and education authorities in the various states and territories and the state offices of relevant Commonwealth bodies. Section 3 describes the Acts of Parliament in each state and territory under which the regulation of apprenticeship and traineeship arrangements is established and the meaning of these two forms of training under the legislation. It also covers the constitution and powers of principal bodies under the acts. Section 4 details employment procedures of apprentices in each state and territory. Section 5 covers the conditions for the employment of apprentices prescribed by the states and territories. Section 6 summarizes apprenticeship and traineeship course requirements in the states and territories.
