Apprentices & Trainees

Trade employment starts with Apprentices and Trainees. Your preparation and acquired skills will shape the future of businesses. Time is of the essence, but yet quality and cost-effective training are key aspects in the relationship with your current and future employers. New England College wants to help you achieve this by providing you the right skills and making sure they are accessible in the workforce. Trainers at New England College will manage your training and assessment.

They will:

Work with you and your employer to develop a training plan, including:

  1. what training needs to occur
  2. how that training will be provided
  3. when/where that training will take place and
  4. support both to make it work
  5. Provide a Training Log Book and any essential learning resources
  6. Visit workplaces to conduct and monitor your training and assessment
  7. Organise any additional learning support required based on your Language, Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (e.g. reading and/or math's skills)
