Principle 5

The training plan should be able to be updated according to changes mutually agreed by the parties to the contract of training.


To ensure the training plan does not become a static document by accurately reflecting the training and assessment being provided to the apprentice.

This requires the RTO, employer and apprentice to regularly review the training plan to ensure milestones are being achieved and that identified competencies continue to meet the needs of the employer and apprentice. The RTO should also ensure the training plan is monitored to ensure the qualification is current.

This principle also ensures that when changes to the training plan are identified, they are understood and agreed to by all the signatories prior to being implemented. Changes to the training plan must not disadvantage the apprentice in being able to achieve a successful completion of their apprenticeship within a reasonable time frame.

This principle is intended to apply only to changes to the training plan that impact on the training and assessment.
