Traineeships and Apprenticeships | For Trainees/Apprentices

As an employee, you may want to make use of the traineeships and apprenticeships scheme to commence or review your own career path. The Australian Apprenticeship and traineeship system can help you to achieve your employment objectives.

Our traineeship coordinator will work with you and our employer to help develop a training plan, deliver your training, assess your achievement of skills and assist you to achieve a nationally recognised qualification upon successful completion of training.

For more information on apprenticeships and traineeships, visit the Commonwealth Government funded Australian Apprenticeship pathways website.

Existing worker traineeships
The Government also subsidises eligible existing workers to undertake traineeships in higher level (ie Certificate IV and above) priority courses.

An existing worker is defined as a person employed with the same employer continuously for more than three months full time or 12 months casual or part-time or a combination of both, immediately prior to the commencement date of the training contract. Please note that the term of employment includes any periods of approved leave.

  • be at least 15 years of age;

School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships

School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships allow students to work for an employer as a paid employee and undertake training towards a recognised qualification, whilst completing their secondary school studies. School-based Apprenticeships combine high school study, training and paid work. On completion of Year 12, students will receive a senior graduation certificate and have trained towards a Certificate qualification in their chosen career, as well as being paid for the time spent working.
