How much do you get paid?

As an Australian School-based Apprentice, you are paid for the time you work. How much you earn depends on the industry you are in, the job you are doing and which industrial arrangement you come under:

  • an Industry Award
  • an Individual Transitional Employment Agreement
  • a Certified Agreement
  • a State or Territory approved contract of employment.
