    (f) Calculating the actual minimum wage

    (i) Where the full-time ordinary hours of work are not 38 or an average of 38 per week,the appropriate hourly minimum wage is obtained by multiplying the relevant minimum wage in clauses E.5.2(a)–(e) of this schedule by 38 and then dividing the figure obtained by the full-time ordinary hours of work per week.

    (ii) Where the approved training for a part-time traineeship is provided fully off-the-job by a registered training organisation,for example at school or at TAFE,the relevant minimum wage in clauses E.5.2(a)–(e) of this schedule applies to each ordinary hour worked by the trainee.

    (iii) Where the approved training for a part-time traineeship is undertaken solely on-the-job or partly on-the-job and partly off-the-job,the relevant minimum wage in clauses E.5.2(a)–(e) of this schedule minus 20% applies to each ordinary hour worked by the trainee.

E.5.3 Other minimum wage provisions

    (a) An employee who was employed by an employer immediately prior to becoming a trainee with that employer must not suffer a reduction in their minimum wage per week or per hour by virtue of becoming a trainee. Casual loadings will be disregarded when determining whether the employee has suffered a reduction in their minimum wage.

    (b) If a qualification is converted from an AQF Certificate Level II to an AQF Certificate Level III traineeship,or from an AQF Certificate Level III to an AQF Certificate Level IV traineeship,then the trainee must be paid the next highest minimum wage provided in this schedule,where a higher minimum wage is provided for the new AQF certificate level.

E.5.4 Default wage rate

    The minimum wage for a trainee undertaking an AQF Certificate Level I–III traineeship whose training package and AQF certificate level are not allocated to a wage level by Appendix E1 is the relevant minimum wage under this schedule for a trainee undertaking an AQF Certificate to Level I–III traineeship whose training package and AQF certificate level are allocated to Wage Level B.

B. This determination comes into operation from 1 July 2016. In accordance with s.166(5) of the Fair Work Act 2009 this determination does not take effect until the start of the first full pay period that starts on or after 1 July 2016.
