New rules for the Cwi training program may allow employers to pay more for job seekers
Workplaces will be able to offer a higher rate of pay to candidates who have completed a training course, the ACT Government has announced.
The new legislation, to be introduced next month, will make it easier for employers to offer an incentive for candidates to take part in the Czi training program.
Employers will now be able offer a $10,000 bonus if candidates complete a training session, but employers will have to pay the rest of the cost.
The ACT Government said the measure was a way of supporting small businesses to provide a better working environment and better training opportunities.
It said that many of the courses offered by Cwi were available only to trainees, so it was unfair that the government would be able charge an extra fee to employers to allow candidates to train.
The government said it was encouraging employers to increase the number of trainees they offer, and to offer training that is more in-depth, by ensuring they have a more structured programme.
The legislation is being introduced to address a shortage of trainee trainees across the ACT.
It also will give the Government more powers to enforce the requirement to pay for the training.
A spokesperson for the Minister for Employment said the Government was “trying to get the right balance between protecting workers and ensuring employers have the opportunity to make an informed decision on whether or not to hire trainees”.
It said the changes would be “proportionate” and would provide more flexibility to businesses and “encourage a more balanced approach to training”.
In the ACT, there are currently 1,200 trainees.
Mr Andrews said that the training program was a great way to attract skilled workers and increase the skills of those who would otherwise not have the qualifications and experience to work in a workplace.
“In our industry, we have seen the demand for the skilled workforce and the skill shortages we have, which has resulted in a large number of people in jobs that aren’t being filled, and it’s an issue that we’ve got to get on top of,” he said.
The Government is also introducing a new ‘Training-First’ policy for trainees and employers to encourage them to learn how to work with others. “
So this is a good opportunity for the people in our industry to do a better job, and they will have a better opportunity to get trained and the right kind of skills, because this is where we have got to be as a community.”
The Government is also introducing a new ‘Training-First’ policy for trainees and employers to encourage them to learn how to work with others.
Training First is an option that offers the opportunity for employers and trainees to work together on training and to work side by side in order to maximise their individual skills and knowledge.
It allows trainees the ability to work alongside other trainees on the same projects and provide feedback and feedback on their work.
Under the new policy, an employer can offer a minimum of $10 for each trainee who completes a Training-First session.
The Minister for Education said the program had been a success in helping trainees become successful in the workplace.
He said that trainees had received feedback that they were working together in a team environment, and that it had helped trainees “get a sense of what a company is all about”.
The Government will also be introducing a $5,000 reward for every trainee that completes the Cwni training program, up from the current $5 for every Cwnis.
The Government said that, over the next six months, the Government will review the way it paid for training for new trainees in the ACT and will review other aspects of the training process.
The announcement comes after it emerged that the ACT’s minimum wage has risen from $2.60 to $3.70 an hour over the past year.
A report from the Australian Council of Trade Unions revealed that over the same period, wages in the state have risen by just under 4 per cent.
