Tuesday 20 February 2018 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am at Ultimo College, Main Campus, Cnr Thomas & Jones Street, Ultimo, Building P, Level Ground, Room PG:35.
You will need to attend approximately 7 hours of class a week over 1 day. An indication of how your weekly timetable may look is: Tuesday, 8:00am to 4:30pm.
Before you can start an apprenticeship, you first need to find an employer in the industry you're interested in that will support you through your studies. You and your employer should contact an Apprenticeship Network Provider (APN) and tell them you're interested in studying at Sydney TAFE. The APN will help you and your employer to complete a Training Contract. Once you have a Training Contract, we will help you, your employer and the APN to complete a Training Plan Proposal. Once you have both these documents, the APN will lodge them with State Training Services, who will provide further advice about next steps.
SMART AND SKILLED FEES
This course is government-subsidised, meaning you pay a portion (capped at $2,000) of the full course fee to Sydney TAFE and the government will pay the balance. However, you must meet certain eligibility criteria for this to apply.
The fee category that will apply to you depends on your eligibility and your individual circumstances. Your fee and eligibility for concession/exemption will be calculated and confirmed during the enrolment process.
