      (i) it would require a significant adjustment to the casual employee’s hours of work in order for the employee to be engaged as a full-time or part-time employee in accordance with the provisions of this award –that is,the casual employee is not truly a regular casual employee as defined in clause 11.4(b);

      (l) The conversion will take effect from the start of the next pay cycle following such agreement being reached unless otherwise agreed.

      (m) Once a casual employee has converted to full-time or part-time employment,the employee may only revert to casual employment with the written agreement of the employer.

      (n) A casual employee must not be engaged and re-engaged (which includes a refusal to re-engage),or have their hours reduced or varied,in order to avoid any right or obligation under clause 11.4.

      (o) Nothing in clause 11.4 obliges a regular casual employee to convert to full-time or part-time employment,nor permits an employer to require a regular casual employee to so convert.

12.7 For the purposes of clause 12,apprenticeship authority means a State or Territory training authority with the responsibility for the apprenticeship.

12.8 In any State or Territory in which any statute or regulation relating to apprentices is in force,that statute and regulation will operate in that State provided that the provisions of the statute or regulation are not inconsistent with this award in which case the provisions of this award will apply.

12.9 An apprentice may be engaged under a training contract approved by the relevant apprenticeship authority,provided the qualification outcome specified in the training contract is consistent with that established for the vocation in the training package determined from time to time by Manufacturing Skills Australia or its successor and endorsed by the National Skills Quality Council or its successor. Such apprenticeships include but are not limited to the following trades:Aeroskills Engineering Tradesperson (Mechanical),Aeroskills Engineering Tradesperson (Structures) and Aeroskills Engineering Tradesperson (Avionics).

12.10 Apprenticeships under this award are competency based. The actual time taken to complete an apprenticeship will therefore vary depending upon factors such as the intensity of training and the variety of work experience.

12.11 The nominal period of the apprenticeship is 4 years;however this period may be varied with the approval of the relevant State or Territory apprenticeship authority,to recognise prior learning including vocational education and training in school,pre-apprenticeship programs and other prior learning,the nominal period may be shortened to reflect the proportion of the competencies already acquired.

12.12 Notwithstanding the nominal period,the apprenticeship is completed in a shorter period when:

      (a) the qualification specified in the training contract is successfully completed;and

      (b) the apprentice has the necessary practical experience to achieve competency in the skills covered by the training contract,provided that the determination as to whether this condition has been met must be by agreement between the registered training organisation,the employer and the apprentice and where there is a disagreement concerning this matter the matter may be referred to the relevant State/Territory apprenticeship authority for determination;and

      (c) the requirements of the relevant State/Territory apprenticeship authority and any requirements of Manufacturing Skills Australia with respect to demonstration of competency and any minimum necessary work experience requirements are met;and

      (d) with respect to trades where there are additional licensing or regulatory requirements under State legislation,when these requirements are met.

12.13 No apprentice,except in an emergency,is to work or be required to work overtime or shift work at times which would prevent their attendance in training consistent with their training contract.

12.14 The minimum wages applying to apprenticeships are dealt with in clause 18.5 and no apprentice is to work under a system of payment by results.

12.15 Payment of fees and textbooks

      (a) Any costs associated with standard fees for prescribed courses and prescribed textbooks (excluding those textbooks which are available in the employer’s technical library) incurred by an employee in connection with training specified in,or associated with,the training contract must be reimbursed to the apprentice within 6 months from the commencement of the apprenticeship or the relevant stage of the apprenticeship or within 3 months of the apprentice commencing training with the Registered Training Organisation (RTO),whichever is the later,unless there is unsatisfactory progress;

      (b) Direct payment of the fees and textbooks,within 6 months from the commencement of the apprenticeship or the relevant stage of the apprenticeship,by an employer to the training provider satisfies the requirement for reimbursement in clause 12.15(a) above.

12.16 Travel payment for block release training

      (a) Where an apprentice is required to attend block release training for training identified in or associated with their training contract,and such training requires an overnight stay,the employer must pay for the excess reasonable travel costs incurred by the apprentice in the course of travelling to and from such training.

      (b) Clause 12.16(a) will not apply where the apprentice could attend an alternative Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and the use of the more distant RTO is not agreed between the employer and the apprentice.

      (c) For the purposes of clause 12.16(a),excess reasonable travel costs:

      (i) include the total costs of reasonable transportation (including transportation of tools where required),accommodation costs incurred while travelling (where necessary) and reasonable expenses incurred while travelling,including meals,which exceed those incurred in travelling to and from work;and

      (ii) do not include payment for travelling time or expenses incurred while not travelling to and from block release training.

      (d) The amount payable by an employer under clause 12.16(a) may be reduced by an amount the apprentice is eligible to receive for travel costs to attend block release training under a Government apprentice assistance scheme. This will only apply if an apprentice has either received such assistance or their employer has advised them in writing of the availability of such assistance.

A.2 Clerical,administrative and support stream

A.2.1 The classification criteria in this schedule provide guidelines to determine the appropriate classification level of persons employed pursuant to this award. In determining the appropriate level,consideration must be given to both the characteristics and typical duties/skills. The characteristics are the primary guide to classification as they indicate the level of basic knowledge,comprehension of issues,problems and procedures required and the level of supervision or accountability of the position. The totality of the characteristics must be read as a whole to obtain a clear understanding of the essential features of any particular level and the competency required. The typical duties/skills are a non-exhaustive list of duties/skills that may be comprehended within the particular level. They are an indicative guide only and at any particular level employees may be expected to undertake duties of any level lower than their own. Employees at any particular level may perform/utilise one such duty/skill,or many of them,depending on the particular work allocated.

A.2.2 The key issue to be looked at in properly classifying an employee is the level of competency and skill that the employee is required to exercise in the work they perform,not the duties they perform per se. It will be noted that some typical duties/skills appear in more than one level,however when assigning a classification to an employee this needs to be done by reference to the specific characteristics of the level. For example,whilst word processing and copy typing are first specifically mentioned at Level 2 in terms of typical duty/skill,it does not mean that as soon as an employee operates a word processor or typewriter they automatically become Level 2. They would achieve a Level 2 classification when they have achieved the level of skill and competency envisaged by the characteristics and the relevant indicative duty(ies)/skill(s) of a Level 2. Level 1 in this structure is to be viewed as the level at which employees learn and gain competence in the basic clerical skills required by the employer,which in most cases would lead to progression through the classification structure as their competency and skills increase and are utilised.

A.2.3 Level 1

      (a) Characteristics

      Employees at this level may include the initial recruit who may have limited relevant experience. Initially work is performed under close direction using established practices,procedures and instructions.

      Such employees perform routine clerical and office functions requiring an understanding of clear,straightforward rules or procedures and may be required to operate certain office equipment. Problems can usually be solved by reference to established practices,procedures and instructions.

      Employees at this level are responsible and accountable for their own work within established routines,methods and procedures and the less experienced employee’s work may be subject to checking at all stages. The more experienced employee may be required to give assistance to less experienced employees in the same classification.

      Level 1 is not intended as the entry point for all new employees to the enterprise but is the level where new employees with no industry experience can gain competency in the basic industry skills and skills required by the employer. At this level those basic industry skills are identified under Airline Industry.

Schedule D—School-based Apprentices

D.1 This schedule applies to school-based apprentices. A school-based apprentice is a person who is undertaking an apprenticeship in accordance with this schedule while also undertaking a course of secondary education.

D.2 A school-based apprenticeship may be undertaken in the trades covered by this award under a training contract for an apprentice declared or recognised by the relevant State or Territory authority.

D.3 The relevant minimum wages for full-time junior and adult apprentices provided for in this award,calculated hourly,will apply to school-based apprentices for total hours worked including time deemed to be spent in off-the-job training.

D.4 For the purposes of clause D.3,where an apprentice is a full-time school student,the time spent in off-the-job training for which the apprentice must be paid is 25% of the actual hours worked each week on-the-job. The wages paid for training time may be averaged over the semester or year.

D.5 A school-based apprentice must be allowed,over the duration of the apprenticeship,the same amount of time to attend off-the-job training as an equivalent full-time apprentice.

D.6 For the purposes of this schedule,off-the-job training is structured training delivered by a Registered Training Organisation separate from normal work duties or general supervised practice undertaken on the job.

D.7 The duration of the apprenticeship must be as specified in the training contract for each apprentice but must not exceed 6 years.

D.8 School-based apprentices progress through the relevant wage scale at the rate of 12 months progression for each 2 years of employment as an apprentice or at the rate of competency based progression if provided for in this award.

D.9 The apprentice wage scales are based on a standard full-time apprenticeship of 4 years (unless the apprenticeship is of 3 years duration) or stages of competency based progression if provided for in this award. The rate of progression reflects the average rate of skill acquisition expected from the typical combination of work and training for a school-based apprentice undertaking the applicable apprenticeship.

D.10 If an apprentice converts from school-based to full-time,the successful completion of competencies (if provided for in this award) and all time spent as a full-time apprentice will count for the purposes of progression through the relevant wage scale in addition to the progression achieved as a school-based apprentice.

D.11 School-based apprentices are entitled pro rata to all of the other conditions in this award.

Schedule E—Supported Wage System

[Sched E varied by PR719661]

E.1 This schedule defines the conditions which will apply to employees who because of the effects of a disability are eligible for a supported wage under the terms of this award.

E.2 In this schedule:

      approved assessor means a person accredited by the management unit established by the Commonwealth under the supported wage system to perform assessments of an individual’s productive capacity within the supported wage system.

      assessment instrument means the tool provided for under the supported wage system that records the assessment of the productive capacity of the person to be employed under the supported wage system.

      disability support pension means the Commonwealth pension scheme to provide income security for persons with a disability as provided under the Social Security Act 1991(Cth),as amended from time to time,or any successor to that scheme.

      relevant minimum wage means the minimum wage prescribed in this award for the class of work for which an employee is engaged.

      supported wage system (SWS) means the Commonwealth Government system to promote employment for people who cannot work at full award wages because of a disability,as documented in the Supported Wage System Handbook. The Handbook is available from the following website:www.jobaccess.gov.au.

      SWS wage assessment agreement means the document in the form required by the Department of Social Services that records the employee’s productive capacity and agreed wage rate.

      (i) If fewer than 38 (or an average of 38) ordinary hours of work per week is considered full-time at the workplace by the employer,the appropriate minimum hourly rate for a part-time trainee is obtained by multiplying the relevant minimum hourly rate in clauses F.4.2(a) to F.4.2(d) by 38 and then dividing the figure obtained by the full-time ordinary hours of work per week.

      (ii) If the approved training for a part-time traineeship is provided wholly off-the-job by a registered training organisation,for example at school or at TAFE,the relevant minimum hourly rate in clauses F.4.2(a) to F.4.2(d) applies to each ordinary hour worked by the trainee.

      (iii) If 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 hourly rate in clauses F.4.2(a) to F.4.2(d) minus 20% applies to each ordinary hour worked by the trainee.

      (b) An employee who was employed by an employer immediately before becoming a trainee with that employer must not suffer a reduction in their minimum rate of pay because of becoming a trainee.

      (c) For the purpose of determining whether a trainee has suffered a reduction as mentioned in clauseF.4.3(b),casual loadings are to be disregarded.

      (d) 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,if a higher minimum wage is provided for the new AQF certificate level.

F.4.4 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 clause F.6 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.

F.5 Employment conditions

F.5.1 A trainee undertaking a school-based traineeship may agree to be paid an additional loading of 25% on all ordinary hours worked instead of being paid annual leave,paid personal/carer’s leave,paid compassionate leave and paid absence on public holidays.

F.5.2 A trainee is entitled to be released from work without loss of pay and without loss of continuity of employment to attend any training and assessment specified in,or associated with,the training contract.

F.5.3 Time spent by a trainee,other than a trainee undertaking a school-based traineeship,in attending any training and assessment specified in,or associated with,the training contract is to be regarded as time worked for the employer for the purposes of calculating the trainee’s wages and determining the trainee’s employment conditions.

F.5.4 The time to be included for the purpose of calculating the wages for part-time trainees whose approved training is wholly off-the-job is determined by clauses F.4.2(e)(ii) and F.4.2(e)(iii) and not by clause F.5.3.

      (e) Leave taken under clause X.2.1(a) does not affect any other paid or unpaid leave entitlement of the employee and counts as service for the purposes of entitlements under this award and the NES.

      NOTE:The employer and employee may agree that the employee may take more than 2 weeks’unpaid pandemic leave.

X.2.2 Annual leave at half pay

      (a) Instead of an employee taking paid annual leave on full pay,the employee and their employer may agree to the employee taking twice as much leave on half pay.

      EXAMPLE:Instead of an employee taking one week’s annual leave on full pay,the employee and their employer may agree to the employee taking 2 weeks’annual leave on half pay. In this example:

      ●the employee’s pay for the 2 weeks’leave is the same as the pay the employee would have been entitled to for one week’s leave on full pay (where one week’s full pay includes leave loading under the Annual Leave clause of this award);and

      ●one week of leave is deducted from the employee’s annual leave accrual.
