Starting an apprenticeship can be an exciting time. It can also be a little nerve-wracking. It’s important to know your rights and responsibilities before you start work, so you can focus on settling into your apprenticeship.
This guide to starting an apprenticeship has important information to help you understand everything.
Apprenticeship Information: Signing Up
A VERTO Vocational Advisor will prepare all the paperwork and conduct a sign-up face-to-face. We will also you with your Unique Student Identifier (USI) and assess whether support is needed and whether apprentice benefits apply.
Once that is completed, VERTO will register the training contract with the relative State Training Authority, and you will receive regular updates via SMS or email.
Apprentice claiming incentives
Starting from January 2023 you may need to use the Apprenticeship Data Management System to claim financial incentives from the Government (if eligible).
You will need a myGov account set up to access ADMS. Your myGov can be either linked to Centrelink, ATO or Medicare OR connected to a standard myGovID. If you don’t have a myGov account, you can follow these instructions online to create one.
If you have used myGov to complete a tax return, file a Medicare claim, access your COVID-19 vaccine certificate or claim Centrelink payments then your account has already been linked.
You will receive an email notification when claims are ready in ADMS.
If you have questions at any time, please don’t hesitate to give us a call on 1300 4 VERTO (1300 483 786) or email us at

Code of Good Practice
The Australian Government has created a Code of Good Practice to assist both parties entering into a training contract with a clear understanding of each other’s obligations and expectations.
A copy of this code will be provided to both the apprentice and employer at sign-up and should be retained by both parties.
