    ●These rates are based on a standard full-time apprenticeship of four years 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.

    ●Where 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 wage scale.
