What Next?

Employers make the initial phone call and application for the traineeship on behalf of the employee. Once initial discussions are complete, the employer and employee mutally agree to enter into a training contract and complete a training plan with Scope Training, the Registered Training Organisation.
As the employer you will need to contact an Apprenticeship Network Provider to complete the application and nominate Scope Training as the training provider.

If you have not previously contacted a provider (as above), Scope staff can point you in the right direction. The
Apprenticeship Network Provider consultant will organise a time to have the paperwork signed with both you and your employee. Once the paperwork is lodged, Scope will assign a trainer and commence the training.
