Department of Employment, Small Business and Training
The State Government is responding to the needs of all Queenslanders impacted by novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Department of Employment, Small Business and Training acknowledges that this is a challenging time for the VET sector and to support pre-qualified suppliers and their students the department has compiled the following information.
General information for VET providers and students
VET providers may extend and/or implement the use of web based communication systems, for example Skype, in place of face-to-face training and assessment where possible.
For further information on this, call 1300 701 801 or visit the ASQA website – www.asqa.gov.au
Providers are encouraged to promote social distancing, the details are updated regularly – https://www.health.gov.au/resources/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-information-on-social-distancing
Information for apprentices, trainees, supervising registered training organisations and employers
Supervising Registered Training Organisations (SRTO) should consider the following steps when undertaking training and assessment services for affected apprentices and trainees:
Where a SRTO is unable to enter a workplace due to COVID19 restrictions, they have the ability to negotiate with the employer and apprentice/trainee as to how training and assessment is delivered;
If training and assessment is currently undertaken in a classroom environment and the employer or apprentice/trainee do not want the student to attend, and delivery online or via workbooks is practicable, the SRTO should try to meet the request in the most reasonable and practicable way;
If after consultation with the employer or apprentice/trainee a reasonable and practicable delivery solution cannot be achieved, the SRTO should document the communication that occurred with the employer and apprentice/trainee outlining the attempts made;
When training and assessment services return to normal, SRTOs will be expected to re-negotiate the training plan with the employer and apprentice/trainee;
The department will take into consideration the specific situation in relation to amendments (including possible extension) to the training contract
