NOTE:See paragraph (f) for calculating the actual minimum wage. See also clause E.4.3 for other minimum wage provisions that affect this paragraph.

(f) Calculating the actual minimum wage

    (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 E.4.2(a) to (e) 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 E.4.2(a) to (e) 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 E.4.2(a) to (e) minus 20% applies to each ordinary hour worked by the trainee.

E.4.3 Other minimum wage provisions

(a) Clause E.4.3 applies despite anything to the contrary in clause E.4.4 or E.3.2.

(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 paragraph (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.

E.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 E.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.

B. This determination comes into operation from 1 July 2018. 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 2018.
