How it Works

CAC:L support and generate apprenticeship and traineeship employment

Apprentices and trainees are employed directly by Civil Apprenticeships and Careers and are placed with “Host Trainers” who have a hosting arrangement with Civil Apprenticeships and Careers.

Civil Apprenticeships and Careers engages apprentices and trainees under training contracts, in accordance with the Training and Skills Development Act 2008 (SA). Apprentices and trainees are employed under the Building and Construction General On-site Award 2010. 

Host Trainers are responsible for increasing the on job skill, experience and knowledge base of apprentices.

Host Trainers are responsible for making payments to Civil Apprenticeships and Careers in return for the provision of apprentices to the Host Trainer.

Civil Apprenticeships and Careers issues invoices to Host Trainers, based on a nominal 40 hour week. Invoices are issued to Host Trainers once apprentice time sheets have been processed in respect of work undertaken at the Host Trainer’s work site.

The invoice payment terms are 7 days. Specific information relating to charge out rates for CACL Apprentices will be provided separately.

The full terms and conditions of the hosting arrangement are contained in the Host Trainer Agreement. The Host Trainer Agreement contains important information, including in respect of apprentice safety and terms of employment, and it is essential for you to read, understand and sign the Agreement before an apprentice / trainee is placed with you.
