Government Agency entry Apprenticeship Commission of Tasmania (1942 - )

Regulatory Body


The Apprenticeship Act 1942 set up a statutory authority, the Apprenticeship Commission of Tasmania which had provision to: encourage, regulate and control training in proclaimed trades; assist youths towards successful trade courses; and provide properly trained craftsmen for industry. The Commission, which meets each month, consists of two representatives of trades unions, two of employer’s organisations and the President, all members being appointed for a three-year term. To keep the Commission up-to-date with the latest developments, Trade Advisory Committees have been formed for particular industries, with both employers and employees represented.
