AGPT registrar training handbook
While in the AGPT program, you must be an employee of the training site where you work; you can’t work as a contractor.
Before commencing at a training site, you’ll need to finalise your agreement and employment terms and conditions. This employment agreement is between you and the training site (the employer) and should meet the National Terms and Conditions for the Employment of Registrars (NTCER). The NTCER outlines the minimum employment conditions that practices must meet, including working hours, supervision and educational release arrangements, pay rates, leave allowances and other support.
When you receive information about your placement for the term, you should get in contact with the practice manager or relevant administrative staff member to start the process so the agreement will be in place before the term begins.
General Practice Registrars Australia (GPRA) has useful resources for registrars about the NTCER, including a template agreement and NTCER FAQs. It’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with these before signing an agreement at each practice.
For placement during an extended skills term, your employment agreement must also meet the NTCER or equivalent for the area you’ve chosen.
